Abstract

To determine the incidence, clinical characteristics and coronary angiographic findings of postinfarction angina, clinical course and coronary angiogram were studied in 45 patients with acute myocardial infarction. During a mean follow-up period of 12 weeks, 17 patients(37.8%) developed angina. Of 5 patients with postinfarction angina within 1 week of infarction, 2 patients died during hospitalization, whereas all 12 patients with postinfarction angina which occured more than 1 week after acute myocardial infarction were discharge alive. The frequency of stenosis over 90% and multivessel disease by coronary angiography were 51.7% and 64.7% respectively in patients with postinfarction angina, and 25%, 28.5% respectively in patients without postinfarction angina.
