Abstract

Prodromal unstable angina on presentation is a significant predictor of smaller infarct size, reflected by smaller creatine kinase-MB and creatine kinase total measurements and lower 30-day, 6-month, and 5-year mortality. These findings suggest that prodromal unstable angina is an important physiologic marker that should be routinely collected for risk stratification.
