BACKGROUND Preinfarction angina (PA) and early reperfusion of infarct-related arteries have been shown to reduce infarct size in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The beneficial effects of PA on infarct size have been attributed to the development of ischemic preconditioning and faster coronary recanalization in patients treated with thrombolytic therapy (TT). OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of PA on clinical coronary reperfusion time in patients with AMI receiving successful… CONTINUE READING
