EDITORIAL: Post-Myocardial Infarction Risk Prediction: Does Ventricular Shape Matter?
Gonzalo Pizarro MD, PhD. Borja Ibáñez MD, PhD
Despite great advances in the care of patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), mainly timely invasive management and long-term pharmacotherapy, patients are still at high risk for long-term adverse events. Cardiovascular imaging has experienced much development, but prediction of long-term events is still today based on a crude parameter: left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). There is a clinical need to identify better predictors that can improve risk stratification in post-MI patients.
