BACKGROUND The study of the pathophysiologic mechanism of perioperative myocardial infarctions is limited to two small autopsy studies suggesting a major role for plaque rupture and thrombosis. However, the perioperative period is characterized by increased cardiac metabolic demand that may lead to infarction in patients with otherwise stable obstructive coronary artery disease. The purpose of this study is to investigate the pathophysiology of perioperative myocardial infarctions. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
