Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study on patients undergoing coronary angiography for acute myocardial infarction demonstrated that 2.8% of patients had angiographically normal coronary arteries and that these patients have a better prognosis than patients with angiographically verified coronary artery disease. The trend toward a higher prevalence of malignancy in this unique patient group raises the possibility of malignancy-induced hypercoagulability or inflammation as an underlying etiologic factor.
