Clinical Prediction Rule of Silver et al for Predicting a Preserved Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction After Myocardial Infarction

Purpose:

To determine if a patient with an acute myocardial infarction (MI) has a presevered left ventricular ejection fraction based on ECG changes.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases, Cardiac Electrophysiology

Objective:

clinical diagnosis, including family history for genetics, imaging studies, severity, prognosis, stage, complications

ICD-10:

I20, I21, I25, I70

Description:

Silver et al proposed a clinical rule to identify patients with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF >= 40%) after an acute myocardial infarction. These patients do not require additional testing to determine if the ejection fraction is adequate. The authors are from the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
