Those trials used the ACC/European Society of Cardiology dual definitions of MI: A conservatively managed patient was deemed to have an acute MI if cardiac enzymes or biochemical markers exceeded the upper limit of normal, whereas a patient undergoing revascularization had to show a threefold rise in biochemical markers after angioplasty or new ECG evidence of Q waves following bypass surgery.
