Objectives: Right ventricular myocardialinfarction as assessed by various diagnostic methods accompanies inferior wallmyocardial infarction in 30% to 50% of patients. Acute right ventricularmyocardial infarction is associated with higher in-hospital morbidity andmortality related to life-threatening hemodynamic compromise and arrhythmias.Since there is scarcity of literature regarding epidemiology of clinicalprofile as well as in-hospital outcomes of patients with right ventricularmyocardial infarction in the Indian population, this study is carried out witha goal of identifying the same in our hospital setting, to fulfill this void. Methods:We examined the incidence of risk factors in patients n = 100 with inferiorwall myocardial infarction and 100 patients with inferior wall myocardialinfarction having right ventricular involvement. Results: The mortality ratewas found to be 12% in patients with inferior wall myocardial infarction and28% in patients having right ventricular involvement in inferior wallmyocardial infarction. Conclusions: From the above study, it can be concludedthat patients with inferior wall myocardial infarction who have rightventricular myocardial involvement are at an increased risk of death, andcardiogenic shock.
