The most common arrhythmias associated with inferior-wall and anterior-wall myocardial infarction are bradycardia and supraventricular and ventricular tachycardia. Optimal treatment approaches are based on the pathophysiology of the infarct and the presence of contributing medical factors (eg, congestive heart failure, metabolic disorders). Temporary or permanent pacemaker therapy is helpful in some patients. Sudden death due to arrhythmia after myocardial infarction may be predicted and avoided in certain situations.
