Surgical Treatment of Myocardial Infarction and its Complications
The indications and surgical management of patients with acute myocardial infarctions and its complications are discussed. As with any emergency operation, the risk is higher than that of elective cases, thus each patient has to be addressed individually. Improved surgical techniques and myocardial protection has improved the overall survival of these patients. Further clinical investigational research is underway to clearly outline the ideal
method of treatment in such patients.
