INTRODUCTION Occurrence of sustained microvolt-level T wave alternans (TWA) at a specified heart rate has been suggested to predict life-threatening arrhythmic events, but its prognostic value has not been well established in patients who survived an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The purpose of this prospective study was to assess the predictive significance of various noninvasive risk indicators of mortality, including TWA, in consecutive post-AMI patients with optimized medical therapy… CONTINUE READING
