BACKGROUND Autonomic dysfunction tends to improve over time after acute myocardial infarction (MI), but the clinical significance of autonomic remodeling is not well known. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the amount of recovery of autonomic function early after MI is associated with a risk for serious arrhythmias. METHODS The prognostic significance of autonomic remodeling after MI was assessed in one post-MI cohort [Cardiac Arrhythmia and Risk… CONTINUE READING
