Aims Left ventricular function is a well-established predictor of malignant ventricular arrhythmias, but little is known about the importance of right ventricular (RV) function. The aim of this study was to investigate the importance of RV function for prediction of sudden cardiac death (SCD) or malignant ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) after acute myocardial infarction (MI). Methods and results A total of 790 patients with acute MI were prospectively included. All patients had 2D strain… CONTINUE READING
