OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of right ventricular (RV) function in patients after a myocardial infarction (MI). BACKGROUND Right ventricular function has been shown to predict exercise capacity, autonomic imbalance and survival in patients with advanced heart failure (HF). METHODS Two-dimensional echocardiograms were obtained in 416 patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction (ejection fraction [LVEF] < or = 40%) from the Survival And… CONTINUE READING
