Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The presence of right ventricular dysfunction in patients with acute myocardial infarction has important implications. It is a marker for in-hospital mortality and failure to recognize it may lead to inappropriate treatment with serious consequences for the patient. Patients surviving the acute event do, however, have a relatively good long-term prognosis.
