PRimary vEntricular fibrillation and suDden dEath during a firST myocardIal iNfArcTION

Initiatives -
To explore this possibility that a family history of sudden cardiac death is a risk factor for primary ventricular fibrillation, suggesting that this dramatic event may be favored by the genetic background. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
