The changes of the fibrinolytic aktivity in chronic low back pain syndrome - There are fluctuation of the symptoms and poor corelation between radiological findings and pain intensity in chronic back pain syndrome, therefore the authors suggested another factors can play a role in chronic back pain out of the mechanical factors. In this study we investigated the changes of the fibrinolytic activity in patients with chronic back pain syndrome.

We determined the changes of fibrinolytic activity by using eauglobulin cloth lysis time and fibrin plate lysis area methods in 74 chronic back pain patients and compared with 25 healthy control group.

In conclusion we observed that decreased fibronlytic activity of the chronic back pain syndrome patients than the control group. These findings suggest that impaired fibrinolytic activity may play an important role in the development of back pain syndrome
