Abstract

BACKGROUND: Polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (PVT) can occur during acute myocardial infarction (MI). In the past, studies investigated the initiation pattern of ventricular tachycardias in different patient populations; however, the mode of onset of PVT in acute MI patients has not been investigated previously.
