We studied 140 patients with a first acute myocardial infarction to examine the effect of preceding angina as a marker of ischemic preconditioning on clinical ventricular arrhythmias and late potentials. Preceding angina was defined as the presence of ischemic chest pain within 24 hours before onset of myocardial infarction lasting no longer than 30 minutes and seen three or more times per day or at rest. Clinical features, angiographic findings, and late potentials were compared between… CONTINUE READING
