VALLS-SERRAL, Amparo; RUMIZ-GONZALEZ, Eva; DUBOIS-MARQUES, Daniela  and  MORELL-CABEDO, Salvador. Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage as a complication of acute coronary syndrome. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.2, pp.132-132.  Epub May 25, 2016. ISSN 0120-5633.

Anticoagulation and antiplatelet therapy of acute coronary syndrome can result in severe hemorrhagic complications. A complication that can go unnoticed is diffuse alveolar hemorrhage, which causes acute respiratory failure and is life-threatening.

We report two cases of acute coronary syndrome with complications of alveolar hemorrhage.

Predisposing factors, diagnosis and treatment for this condition are analysed.
