Evidence of acute infarct expansion and the frequency of the acute infarct expansion syndrome (acute infarct dilatation and thinning associated with hypotension and left ventricular failure but no evidence of new necrosis) occurring at two days or more after a first acute Q-wave myocardial infarction were studied using serial two-dimensional echocardiography in 221 consecutive patients (100 anterior, 121 inferior). Patients with symptomatic pericarditis were treated with indomethacin (group 1… CONTINUE READING
