PMID 22582479

Abstract

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) during the early postpartum period is rare but may be associated with poor maternal outcome. We report an inferior AMI in 30-year-old woman with mitral valve replacement during early postpartum period successfully treated with tirofiban. For a patient that has got AMI due to massive thrombus and that is not suitable for percutaneous coronary intervention and has got contraindication to thrombolytic therapy, glikoprotein IIb-IIIa inhibitor (tirofiban) infusion must be kept in mind.
