In the Defibrillator in Acute Myocardial Infarction Trial (DINAMIT)—which enrolled subjects within 40 days of an acute myocardial infarction and randomized them to optimal medical therapy with or without a defibrillator—no difference was shown in mortality at a mean follow-up of 2.5 years. The CABG-Patch and DINAMIT trials each involved a possible confounder of revascularization. [28]
