BACKGROUND Reports on the prognostic importance of atrial fibrillation following myocardial infarction have provided considerable variation in results. Thus, this study examined the impact of left ventricular systolic function and congestive heart failure on the prognostic importance of atrial fibrillation in acute myocardial infarction patients that might explain previous discrepancies. METHODS The study population was 6676 patients consecutively admitted to hospital with acute myocardial… CONTINUE READING
