Frequency and complexity of ventricular ectopic beats in the posthospital phase of myocardial infarction.

This study is a descriptive report of the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias in a large, prospectively designed follow-up study of postcoronary patients. Six-hour Holter recordings were obtained on 954 postinfarction patients prior to hospital discharge and at 4 (n = 837), 8 (n = 762), 12 (n = 713), and 24 (n = 487) months post-discharge.
