Until the 1970s, nitroglycerin was used mainly for controlling angina pectoris. It was generally avoided in the setting of acute myocardial infarction. The main reason was fear of hypotension and reflex tachycardia. Experimental and clinical data since the mid-1970s indicate that hypotension should indeed be avoided during acute infarction. More ...
Beahrs M M - - 1989
The acute fibrinous pericarditis that complicates acute myocardial infarction is usually of no functional significance. Uncommonly, hemorrhagic effusion may compound this process. In the case reported here, the pericardial aspect of acute lateral myocardial infarction dominated the clinical picture, thus posing a diagnostic problem. This phase of the disease stimulates ...
