Atrial fibrillation and sustained ventricular arrhythmias are the most common arrhythmias accompanying acute coronary syndromes. Arrhythmias are associated with worse clinical course and increased risk of in-hospital, short-term and long-term mortality in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction. This review summarizes the current knowledge on most prevalent arrhythmias in patients with ACS and their management in intensive coronary care unit.
