BACKGROUND The prognostic impact of body mass index (BMI) in patients following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) may be altered by neurohormonal blockade. METHODS The impact of neurohormonal blockade on the association between BMI and mortality was examined in 5548 patients following AMI (CONSENSUS II), 50% receiving enalapril and 7% beta-blockade, and in 4367 patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) (4S), 79% with prior AMI, 12% receiving ACEi and 67% beta-blockade. Median follow-up was… CONTINUE READING
