Singapore Medical Journal 47 (3) : 240-242. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Simultaneous thrombotic occlusion of multiple coronary arteries in acute myocardial infarction is a well-recognised phenomenon. Studies have reported diffuse destabilisation of atherosclerotic plaques in patients with acute myocardial infarction, leading to the concept of "pan-coronaritis". The putative mechanism is attributed to a systemic thrombophilic and inflammatory state. We report the occurrence of this phenomenon in two middle-aged male patients.||Source Title:||Singapore Medical Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/115287||ISSN:||00375675|
