Treatment of acute coronary syndrome: Part 2: ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  22610195     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
OBJECTIVE: : Familiarize clinicians with recent information regarding the diagnosis and treatment of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
DATA SOURCES: : PubMed search and review of relevant medical literature.
SUMMARY: : Definition, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction are reviewed.
CONCLUSIONS: : Patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction benefit from prompt reperfusion therapy. Adjunctive antianginal, antiplatelet, antithrombotic, beta blocker, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, and statin agents minimize ongoing cardiac ischemia, prevent thrombus propagation, and reduce the risk of recurrent cardiovascular events.
