Answer

Answer

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]
