Clinical management of actue myocardial infarction

A. D. Guerci, M. L. Weisfeldt

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is increasing evidence that angiography and revascularization soon after thrombolytic therapy offer no benefit over expectant medical therapy. Rather, intervention should be held in reserve for those patients in whom ischemia recurs. The hospital management of acute myocardial infarction, beginning when the patient is admitted to the coronary care unit, is discussed.
