Right ventricular involvement in acute myocardial infarction.

PMID:  10492715     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
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.
