Abstract
Therapy after acute myocardial infarction offers the prospect of incre ased survival in carefully selected patients. Current recommendations favor the use of beta blockers and antiplatelet agents, but some posit ive effects have been seen with use of anticoagulants, angiotensin-con verting enzyme inhibitors, and calcium channel blockers. Further studi es are needed to evaluate these drug classes in reinfarction prophylax is and to define differences among the agents in each class.
