Blood clot concept challenged By LAWRENCE K. ALTMAN iXew Vurk Times .Service STOCKHOLM (AP) Three Swedish doctors "have mads a discovery that challenges the basic medical concepts of t h e relationship between bipod clots and heart attacks. The doctors reported that blood clots are formed in the coronary arteries after a heart attack, doctors net before as had assumed. They said they had made the. new findings by following the course of a human protein that Ihey had injected into a group of heart attack patients under treatment in the coronary care unit o[ the Serafimer Hospital here. The human protein, called fibrinogen, is essential for the normal blood clotting process. The fibrinogen had made radio-active so Ihe researchers could determine precisely when the clot formed before or after the heart attack, i Dr. Lcif Erhai-dr, the princi- pal Swedish investigaior, said in an interview that the results could rekindle an old conlro- i versy about Uie value of anti- coagulants, or blood thinning drugs, in the treatment of heart I attacks. Because the clots ap- parently are formed after the attack, the Swedish study sug- gests that anticoagulants could have little value in preventing might most iosclerosis, which damages the "We know of no way coronary arteries that carry j if a living patient has Banks offer opportunity to women.

Adapting home equipment for patient care will also be dis- cussed, together with family health planning for disaster and emergency home delivery.

When Erhardt decided to combine his pathology training with cardiology, he learned that a radioactive fibruwgen techni- que developed a decade ago had not been applied to the study of clots in heart attacks. So Erhardt.and his colleagues decided to use it on alt patients who volunteered after they were admitted to the coronary care unit.

As well, most of the basic 'acts about the causes and treatment of vencral disease al- ready are known. Mr. Lalonde said he person- ally leaned toward a smaller, simpler study by a committee of experts who could look at all aspects of the problem, social as well as educational and med- ical, and produce a report much faster. "It is cur intention to have this question on the agenda of the next meeting of deputy min- isters of and he said. "They will try to assess the most recent trends and look at whether there are special ex- periments and programs lo be taken on a national basis."
