BACKGROUND Left ventricular enlargement after myocardial infarction increases the likelihood of an adverse outcome. In an echocardiographic substudy of the Survival and Ventricular Enlargement (SAVE) Trial, we assessed whether captopril would attenuate progressive left ventricular enlargement in patients with left ventricular dysfunction after acute myocardial infarction and, if so, whether this would be associated with improved clinical outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS Two-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
