What is the best predictor of spontaneous ventricular tachycardia and sudden death after myocardial infarction?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Death during the first year after myocardial infarction is most commonly due to spontaneous ventricular tachycardia (VT) or fibrillation (VF). The purpose of this study was to compare, in a single cohort of patients, the values of inducible VT, delayed ventricular activation, low left ventricular ejection fraction, high-grade ventricular ectopy… (More)
