Abstract

Objective - Monomorphic ventricular tachycardias (MVT) frequently occur in the acute phase of myocardial infarction (MI). In the past, some studies aimed to investigate the initiation pattern of ventricular tachycardias, although not in acute MI patients. The aim of the present study was to analyse the initiation pattern of MVT in acute MI using rhythm strips.
