MENDOZA-GONZALEZ, Celso. Clinical indications por implant of CID in patients with coronary heart disease and cardiac failure. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2006, vol.76, suppl.2, pp. 209-213. ISSN 1405-9940.
The mortality of the myocardial acute infarction has diminished with the introduction of the new strategies of reperfusion; this way, the number of patients with ventricular left dysfunction has increased. This one is a special population with risk greater than rest of people of suffering an event of cardiac sudden death (SD). This fact needs of a suitable process of stratification of the risk for SD that this population has and it is necessary measures of primary and secondary prevention to diminish the mortality of these patients. In this paper the clinical characteristics of this population by precedent of heart attack of the myocardium and/or ventricular left dysfunction are checked. These characters can suggest the indication for the implant of an automatic defibrillator.
