Shortage of oxygen supply due to inadequate perfusion induces depressed contractile function in viable myocardium (hibernation) or myocardial cell death (myocardial infarction). The present review addresses the role of revascularization in the prevention of myocardial infarction in acute coronary syndromes, optimization of myocardial salvage once myocardial infarction has occurred, and treatment of hibernating myocardium.
