Several factors contributed to the delay between Heberden’s 1772 article on angina pectoris and James Herrick’s classic description of acute myocardial infarction in 1912. Probably the most important factor in this delay was the belief that sudden coronary occlusion was invariably fatal. This view predominated until the early twentieth century. Other reasons included the inconsistent relation of symptoms to pathologic findings in ischemic heart disease, the reliance of nineteenth century physicians on auscultation as an indicator of heart disease, the failure to examine the coronary arteries and myocardium routinely at autopsy, the lag between pathologic and physiologic discoveries and their incorporation into medical practice, the preoccupation of late nineteenth century physicians with the new field of bacteriology, and the lack of any diagnostic tool to help physicians identify coronary artery obstruction or its consequences during life (32).
