PMID:  20522139     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) has established guidelines to determine the risk for non-cardiac procedures, such as oral procedures, when individuals have experienced severe cardiac disease, including myocardial infarction. This is the first time the ESC has developed consensus guidelines to assist practitioners in managing care for cardiac patients receiving medical or dental procedures. Factors for risk assessment are described and management for oral care is discussed.
