OBJECTIVES This study sought to understand prognostic implications of increased baseline left ventricular (LV) mass and geometric patterns in a high risk acute myocardial infarction. BACKGROUND The LV hypertrophy and alterations in LV geometry are associated with an increased risk of adverse cardiovascular events. METHODS Quantitative echocardiographic analyses were performed at baseline in 603 patients from the VALIANT (VALsartan In Acute myocardial iNfarcTion) echocardiographic study. The… CONTINUE READING
