The timing of surgical coronary artery revascularization after an acute myocardial infarction is not well defined. The inherent difficulties of mobilizing a surgical team at odd hours has led to the adoption of a percutaneous coronary intervention strategy when possible or a clot-busting drug regimen when percutaneous coronary intervention is not available. Despite the difficulties and risks of surgical revascularization, there are situations where it may be indicated. We conducted a review of the literature to better understand the timing, scope, and risks of surgical coronary revascularization after an acute myocardial infarction.
