OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the role of aspirin in a precisely defined cohort with coronary disease receiving current therapy. BACKGROUND Prior results suggest that aspirin modestly decreases cardiac mortality in patients with coronary disease. However, these findings reflect heterogeneous study conditions and earlier management strategies. METHODS We utilized findings from the Multicenter Study of Myocardial Ischemia, which enrolled 936 subjects 1 to 6 months after an acute myocardial… CONTINUE READING
