The prognostic significance of ventricular and supraventricular tachyarrhythmias after infarction varies with type and timing. In some cases intervention may be appropriate, and in others not. Management of peri-infarction and of later arrhythmias is reviewed. To avoid proarrhythmic consequences, pharmacologic treatment should be rigorously guided by carefully defined end points.
