  1. Trends in the use of drug therapies in patients with acute myocardial infarction : 1988 to 1992.

    Article - En anglais


    In this study, we investigated the use of thrombolytic agents and other cardiac drugs in a national cohort of patients with acute myocardial infarction and assessed the influence of large clinical studies on types of thrombolytic therapy prescribed.


    Information about usage patterns for these drugs is unavailable, and little is known about the impact of large clinical trials on their use.


    We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 65,011 patients who were treated for acute myocardial infarction during fiscal years 1988 to 1992 (October 1, 1987 to September 30, 1992) in hospitals participating in the SMS Corporation's on-line data pool.
