Cardiac structure and function, remodeling, and clinical outcomes among patients with diabetes after myocardial infarction complicated by left ventricular systolic dysfunction, heart failure, or both.

The mechanisms responsible for the increased risk of heart failure ( HF ) post–myocardial infarction ( MI ) may differ between patients with versus without diabetes. We hypothesized that after high-risk MI, patients with diabetes would demonstrate patterns of remodeling that are suggestive of reduced ventricular compliance and that are associated with an increased risk of death or HF.
