Abstract

It is important that clinicians have a clear understanding of the significance of ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) that occur in the context of acute myocardial infarction depending on the type of VA and timing in relation to the myocardial injury. This will greatly assist in evaluating prognostic implications and tailoring optimal strategies for management. This review presents an update on the current understanding of the pathogenesis, incidence, and clinical features of postinfarction VAs, and outcomes and potential therapeutic options.
