Coronary artery disease is a common malady in industrialized societies. The end stage of this progressive disorder frequently results in myocardial infarction (MI), now known to be due to acute thrombosis of a narrowed coronary artery. In the past, supportive care was all that could be offered to patients suffering MI. But the new therapeutic modalities of thrombolysis and transluminal coronary angioplasty now offer a means of limiting the damage caused by coronary stenosis and thrombosis in many cases. This article reviews conventional, recently introduced, and possible future treatment strategies to manage coronary obstruction. Current concepts of handling the patient suffering a suspected acute coronary thrombosis in the office setting are presented as well.
