Increased periodic repolarization dynamics (PRD) indicate increased risk of death in cardiac patients. This study thoughts to prospectively validate the prognostic value of PRD in post-infarction patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of total deaths [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of cardiovascular deaths [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Enrollment: 754
Actual Study Start Date: October 2010
Study Completion Date: December 2016
Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Periodic repolarization dynamics (PRD) reflect periodic changes of repolarization instability located in the low-frequency spectral range. Level of PRD can be assessed using a high resolution surface ECG recorded in the 12-leads of Frank leads configuration during resting conditions.

Increased levels of PRD have been associated with sympathetic overactivity and increased risk of mortality in survivors of acute myocardial infarction and patients undergoing a clinically indicated exercise test.
