To determine the prognostic value of supraventricular arrhythmias, in addition to ventricular arrhythmias and clinical variables after myocardial infarction, 99 consecutive patients had 24-h ambulatory monitoring within 2 weeks of discharge. All patients completed at least 4-year follow-up (mean 56 +/- 6 months). During follow-up there were 29 cardiac events (13 cardiac deaths and 16 reinfarctions). The highest risk was associated with ventricular tachycardia (positive predictive accuracy 100… CONTINUE READING
