AIMS Information regarding the cardiorenal axis in patients after a myocardial infarction (MI) is limited. We examined the change in renal function after a first MI, the protective effect of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition and the prognostic value of baseline renal function. METHODS AND RESULTS The study population consisted of 298 patients with a first anterior wall MI who were randomized to the ACE inhibitor captopril or placebo after completion of streptokinase infusion… CONTINUE READING
