The reasons for the poorer prognosis of anterior versus inferior myocardial infarction of equivalent enzymatic size remain uncertain. We investigated whether there are differences in left ventricular function between patients with anterior and inferior infarctions of equivalent enzymatic size to account for their differing outcomes. Clinical, serum enzyme, and electrocardiographic data were prospectively recorded in a consecutive series of patients less than 70 years of age with their first… CONTINUE READING
