The author has reported the results of previous studies using UK for treatment of myocardial infarction. In this study, UK was administered to patients with myocardial infarction who went coronary angiography. Five patients with myocardial infarction or impending infarction were admitted to the department of cardiology of the Saitama National Hospital.
