- Comparison of the prognostic value of RR-interval variability after acute myocardial infarction in patients with versus those without diabetes mellitusWilliam Whang
Cardiac Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard University, Boston, Massachusetts 02114, USA
Am J Cardiol 92:247-51. 2003..In our post-AMI sample, RRV provided valuable prognostic information among diabetic patients. Our findings suggest that cardiac autonomic neuropathy plays a role in the high mortality rate seen in diabetic patients after AMI...

- Dietary alpha-linolenic acid intake and risk of sudden cardiac death and coronary heart diseaseChristine M Albert
Center for Arrhythmia Prevention, Division of Preventive Medicine, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA 02215 1204, USA
Circulation 112:3232-8. 2005..Alpha-linolenic acid, an intermediate-chain n-3 fatty acid found primarily in plants, may decrease the risk of fatal coronary heart disease (CHD) through a reduction in fatal ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD)...
- Physical exertion, exercise, and sudden cardiac death in womenWilliam Whang
Cardiovascular Division, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA
JAMA 295:1399-403. 2006..Exercise is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular events but may transiently increase the risk of ventricular arrhythmias. Its short-term and long-term associations with risk of sudden cardiac death among women are unclear...
