Among 1,590 patients with acute myocardial infarction from 1990 to 1994, the rate of primary ventricular fibrillation was 3.6%. The prevalence of smoking, complete left bundle branch block, hypokalemia, and decreased left ventricular function was higher in patients with ventricular fibrillation while those on thrombolytic therapy and those with non-Q-wave myocardial infarction were significantly lower.
