Questionnaires were sent to all Danish departments admitting patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in order to investigate the attitudes of the departments to thrombolytic therapy in AMI. Two questionnaires were used: one with few questions which was answered by all 68 departments, and a more comprehensive questionnaire which was answered by 51 departments. The study shows that thrombolytic therapy now is use in all departments as opposed to 25% two years ago. In connection with introduction of thrombolytic therapy scientific studies are performed in 75% of the departments. In all departments, streptokinase (SK) is the drug of first choice and recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) is used in 2/3 of the departments in cases where SK-antibodies are suspected.
