In 1931 the authors reported 10 cases of acute cardiac infarction secondary to coronary artery thrombosis in which the red blood cell sedimentation time was studied.1 Burak2 subsequently reported a similar study, but the literature on the subject has, in general, been scant. Singer3 and Wollheim4 have both mentioned the increased rapidity of red cell sedimentation rate as a diagnostic factor in coronary thrombosis. Because the sedimentation time has frequently been of great help to us in the diagnosis and treatment of acute coronary thrombosis, we are reporting an additional series of cases studied during the past three years.
