ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a method of treating an acute coronary occlusion by the use of vasodilating and antifibrillatory drugs which has been investigated experimentally in dogs. The clinical application of a long acting nitrate compound to the immediate postmyocardial infarction state in humans has also been tried with good tolerance to the drug. Even though the argument of how the nitrates and nitrites work and whether the action demonstrated in animals is applicable to man persists, it seems reasonable to assume that nitroglycerin can produce a beneficial response in angina pectoris in the presence of pathologic blood vessels. Actual dilatation of atherosclerotic coronary vessels has been shown experimentally.
