Early monomorphic ventricular tachycardia tied to long term mortality in STEMI
Early monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) compared to nonmonomorphic VT/VF (ventricular fibrillation) is associated with a higher risk of all-cause mortality in STEMI patients, concludes a recent study. The study appears in The American Journal of Cardiology.
Early ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation are shown to be associated with increased in-hospital mortality but does not impact the long-term prognosis in ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Recent data support a differential approach to the arrhythmia type and indicate long-term mortality hazard tied to monomorphic VT.
