Conduction Disturbances in Acute Myocardial Infarction:Incidence, Site-wise Relationship and The Influence on In-Hospital Prognosis

The study was designed to assess the incidence of conduction disturbances, the relationship of the site of infarction with the type of conduction disturbances and the influence of conduction disturbances on the in-hospital prognosis. One hundred consecutive patients (M : F =89 : 11) with a age range of 35-60 years with the history of first attack of acute myocardial infarction were included in the study. There were 45 anterior, 43 inferior and 12 combined anterior and inferior myocardial infarction patients. 44 ofthe patients had some type of conduction disturbances (Group A) and 56 had none (Group B). Inferior myocardial infarction patients showed higher incidence of conduction disturbances than anterior myocardial infarction (56.8% and 31.8…
