The prognostic significance of right ventricular ejection fraction, measured by radionuclide ventriculography, was assessed in 168 consecutive patients with inferior myocardial infarction. Right ventricular ejection fraction was 0.40 or less in 35 patients. Over a follow-up period of 40 months, there were 15 deaths in the total group of 168 patients, eight… CONTINUE READING
