Abstract

The extent of coronary disease and its relationship to prognosis has been well documented in patients with angina pectoris (1). Acute myocardial infarction is generally an earlier manifestation of coronary artery disease (CAD) than angina (2). Therefore it cannot be assumed that patients with acute myocardial infarction have the same spectrum of coronary disease with the same prognostic significance as patients with angina.
