BACKGROUND In patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction (AIMI), right ventricular involvement (RVI) is one of the strongest predictors of in-hospital death. We hypothesized that the impact of RVI on AIMI prognosis depends on the patient's age. METHODS AND RESULTS The in-hospital clinical outcome of 798 consecutive patients admitted to the coronary care unit within 48 hours of symptom onset with AIMI was analyzed according to patient age and to the presence of RVI diagnosed by ECG and… CONTINUE READING
