Abstract

In recent years the widely held concept that coronary thrombi cause myocardial infarcts has been seriously questioned. On the basis of pathologic studies, several reports have suggested that coronary thrombi do not cause infarcts but instead are the result of infarction. Should these findings become generally substantiated, the antithrombotic approach to the prevention and therapy of ischemic heart disease must be revised. This workshop was organized to examine more closely this issue and to sort out reasons for such divergent views of the role of thrombosis in the pathogenesis of myocardial infarction.
