Abstract

Current guidelines do not advocate implantation of cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) for survivors of ventricular fibrillation (VF) during the first 48 hours of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, contemporary studies in a real-life setting with long-term follow-up are lacking. We assessed the prognostic impact of early VF in a non-selected population of STEMI patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
