BACKGROUND: The prognostic value of electrocardiographic (ECG) variables in predicting major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in the era of modern therapy is unclear. This study was conducted to evaluate the prognostic significance of ECG parameters in predicting 1-year MACEs for AMI patients. METHODS: Between January 2006 and January 2008, 529 AMI patients were included. ECG variables were analyzed from the ECG taken on discharge day...

There are limited data regarding gender-related differences in electrocardiographic (ECG) presentation in patients after myocardial infarction (MI) and the prognostic value of ECG variables in women. A series of ECG parameters were analyzed in 838 patients (216 women, 622 men) using standard electrocardiography performed 5 to 7 days after first MI, and their associations with gender and risk for cardiac events, defined as cardiac death, nonfatal MI, or unstable angina, were evaluated. Heart rate was faster and QTc duration was longer, whereas QRS duration was shorter in women compared with men...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate the short-term prognostic value of the admission electrocardiogram (ECG) in patients with a first acute myocardial infarction (MI) without ST segment elevation. BACKGROUND: ST segment depression on hospital admission predicts a worse outcome in patients with a first acute MI, but the prognostic information provided by the location of ST segment depression remains unclear. METHODS: In 432 patients with a first acute MI without Q waves or > or = 0...
