INTRODUCTION Increased intra-QRS fragmentation score (FRA) in magnetocardiography (MCG) has shown association with sustained ventricular arrhythmias in post-MI patients suggesting its relation to arrhythmia substrate. The aim of this study was to investigate whether increased FRA in MCG predicts arrhythmic events and mortality after acute myocardial infarction (MI) with cardiac dysfunction. METHODS AND RESULTS A series of 158 patients with acute MI and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF… CONTINUE READING
