Background: Several intracoronary agents have been used by interventional cardiologists, in context of PCI iatrogenic thrombosis. Recently the use of low-dose fibrinolysis at the time of the primary PCI has gained popularity as a new strategy to improve post-procedural coronary flow. Conclusion: Using low-dose fibrinolytic therapy at the time of primary PCI might play a vital role in minimizing the risk of microvascular thrombus.
