Abstract

Accelerated idioventricular rhythm (AIVR) often occurs in the setting of acute myocardial infarction, specifically after reperfusion. We studied the direct left ventricular (LV) dynamic effects of AIVR compared with sinus rhythm. Furthermore, we observed an interesting finding of LV unloading on the occurrence of AIVR.
