Acute Atypical Coronary Artery Insufficiency
Incidence and Clinical Course
Not all patients with acute coronary thrombosis or inadequacy develop classic myocardial infarction. Almost 30 per cent of such patients were found to have atypical and apparently less extensive myocardial injury as estimated by the clinical and electrocardiographic findings. The morbidity as well as the mortality was of a lesser order and a somewhat different therapeutic regimen could be employed.
