Therapy of Myocardial Infarction and Coronary Heart Disease

  • J. E. Doherty


The treatment of coronary artery disease in the usual hospital setting is dictated by its presentation:
  1. 1.

    angina pectoris

  2. 2.

    intermediate syndrome

  3. 3.

    myocardial infarction

Each of these manifestations of coronary artery disease will be described and essenstials of management presented.
