Abstract

Patients with a first non-Q-wave acute myocardial infarction with high- degree atrioventricular block were compared with patients without atrioventricular block. In-hospital complications and mortality were significantly higher among patients with atrioventricular block; atrioventricular block emerged as an important prognostic predictor of early mortality in these patients.
