We retrospectively studied 3 patients with Kawasaki disease (KD) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) who were treated with intracoronary administration of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA). Two-dimensional echocardiogram on the next day of the treatment revealed reduction of thrombus and improvement of the cardiac function in all 3 patients. However, a 12-month-old patient treated with 200,000 U/kg of t-PA at 48 h after the onset of AMI died of recurrent myocardial infarction. The other 2 patients treated with 400,000 and 800,000 U/kg, respectively, showed clear, though not prompt, improvement in clinical symptoms and laboratory data. The intracoronary thrombolytic therapy using high-dose t-PA appears effective in treating AMI associated with KD.
