We studied two forms of post-infarction angina: ischemia at a distance (angina with new electrocardiographic changes distant from the acute infarct) and ischemia in the infarct zone (angina with new electrocardiographic changes limited to the leads originally involved by the acute infarct). Seventy patients with early post-infarction angina were followed for an average of six months; 43 had ischemia at a distance, and 27 had ischemia in the infarct zone. Mortality in the entire group was 56 per… 
Early ischemia after MI is a frequent finding that is clinically predictable and identifies, independently of non-Q wave MI and of extent of coronary artery disease, a group at high risk for MI extension in hospital and for cardiac events during follow-up.
Prevalence and pathogenesis of silent myocardial ischemia following myocardial infarction.
The cause of silent ischemia after myocardial infarction may be closely related to the smaller size of reversible myocardia, which could be a factor in determining the presence or absence of pain.
Thrombolysis in postinfarction angina.
Long-term function in the remote region after myocardial infarction: importance of significant coronary stenoses in the non-infarct-related artery.
It is demonstrated that significant stenoses in arteries supplying the non-infarct territory adversely affect global and regional left ventricular function after a transmural infarction and non- infarct artery anatomy should be considered in intervention strategies to improve left vent cardiac function after acute myocardial infarctions.
[Prognostic value of early post-infarction angina in elderly patients].
Findings could not be replicated in this study of the elderly population of elderly patients with acute myocardial infarction, where numerous studies have confirmed the link between early post-infarction angina and poor long-term prognosis.


Ischemia at a Distance After Acute Myocardial Infarction: A Cause of Early Postinfarction Angina
The concept of ischemia at a distance not only extends the understanding of an ischemic border zone, but suggests a subset of early postinfarction patients who might be particularly suited for prompt cardiac catheterization with aggressive medical and surgical intervention.
Safe Early Revascularization for Continuing Ischemia After Acute Myocardial Infarction
In patients with continuing ischemia immediately after MI, myocardial revascularization can be safely performed without further injury to the myocardium, and with excellent long-term results.
Predictors of Clinical Course, Coronary Anatomy and Left Ventricular Function After Recovery From Acute Myocardial Infarction
Multivariate analysis identified hypertension, three-vessel coronary disease, postinfarction angina pectoris and previous AMI as significant predictors of recurrent AMI during the 30 month follow-up.
Prognostic value of exercise testing soon after myocardial infarction.
A limited treadmill exercise test performed one day before hospital discharge after acute myocardial infarction is safe and can predict mortality in the subsequent year.
Types of death in acute myocardial infarction.
The primary purpose of this study was to determine, in so far as possible, the type of death in a series of patients who died of acute myocardial infarction, with the hope of shedding additional light on the mechanism ofdeath in other patients having this condition.
Multivessel Coronary Artery Spasm
A 60-year-old patient with variant angina was shown to have myocardial ischemia in two different regions supplied by separate major coronary arteries. Neither artery had significant coronary
Compensatory changes of the distal coronary vascular bed during progressive coronary constriction.
The degree and effectiveness of compensatory changes in the distal coronary vascular bed during progressive proximal coronary stenosis have not been described. In this study, coronary vascular bed
