ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "postmyocardial infarction syndrome" is presented. It refers to nonischemic chest pain which occurs after a patient has had a myocardial infarction, that typically worsens with deep breathing, improves while sitting up, and is aggravated by lying down. The patients who may develop a low-grade fever and elevated levels of antimyocardial antibodies, are treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroids.
