THOMAS P. JACOBS, M.D.
This study was undertaken in an attempt to clarify several of the clinical features of the initial episode of acute myocardial infarction, and to correlate these data with laboratory and necropsy findings in order to cull therefrom information useful in the diagnosis and early prognosis of the disease.
The material consists of the records of 88 patients treated at the Roosevelt Hospital from 1934 to 1947. The cases have been rigidly selected from the records of over 800 cases with the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. Thirty-three of those presented were observed by the writer.
