Good morning!

I had a major heart attack about 2 years ago. At the time I was outfitted with a stent and put on aspirin, a beta-blocker and an ACE inhibitor and sentenced to the usual program of aerobic exercise. It turns out that my arteries are in perfect condition, and later, with the results of more tests, it was guessed that the heart attack was caused by some clotting problem.

Can anyone point me to GOOD, SERIOUS, DETAILED articles evaluating beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, or exercise in cases like these, or which might give a rationale why any of them should help. If the heart attack was caused by some thrombotic event, I can't see what my heart rate, etc., have to do with it.

Good Morning, David and Welcome to HealingWell!! yeah
(It was morning when I started this and then the phone rang!) lol
I would like to first offer my sincere best wishes to you and am glad that you found us here!
Secondly, what did they stent, if it wasn't a necessity?  I'm assuming there was some blockage present?
Did you have a surgery prior to this event to cause clot formation?
Thirdly, exercise as I'm sure you know, is healthy for anyone, especially if you've had any problems with clotting in the past.  It helps keep your heart pumping at it's best and keeps it flowing steadily with the hope that no more clots will form!
Fourth, once you've had a heart attack regardless of the cause, the idea is to keep the heart healthy and if medications do the trick, then...
Best Wishes and I hope the following help you, Dave!
