Efficacy of Implantable Defibrillator Therapy After a Myocardial Infarction


Brief description of study

This study will assess whether an implantable defibrillator will increase the likelihood of survival in patients who have had a heart attack in the prior 5 years, have abnormal test results from a 24 hour heart monitor, and who have low normal heart function.

Detailed Study Description

The REFINE ICD trial will assess whether prophylactic ICD therapy, guided by non-invasive risk assessment tools, reduces mortality in MI survivors with better-preserved LV function.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT00673842
