Ischemic heart disease may be asymptomatic or present with stable angina, non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome, ST-elevation myocardial infarction (MI), or sudden death. Ischemic heart disease causes nearly 800,000 deaths annually. This chapter has six goals: identify risk factors for and clinical presentations of ischemic heart disease; review primary and secondary prevention of ischemic heart disease; define the various tests for ischemic heart disease and recognize their roles; review the roles of medical management, percutaneous intervention, and surgical management in ischemic heart disease; describe acute coronary syndromes, their evaluation, and management; and identify the mechanical complications of myocardial infarction.
