To assess the role of ventricular premature beats in influencing mortality of coronary patients, 1739 men with prior myocardial infarction were monitored for ectopic activity for one hour at a standard base-line examination, and followed for mortality for periods up to four years (average, 24.4 months). Analyses of survival taking into account other important prognostic variables establish that the presence of complex premature beats (R on T, runs of 2 or more, multiform or bigeminal premature… CONTINUE READING
