Prospective ARNI vs. ACE inhibitor trial to Determine Superiority in reducing heart failure Events after Myocardial Infarction (PARADISE-MI): design and baseline characteristics

12 April, 2021 - NIH - National Library of Medicine
Research Article:
Aims: Patients surviving an acute myocardial infarction (AMI) are at risk of developing symptomatic heart failure (HF) or premature death. We hypothesized that sacubitril/valsartan, effective in the treatment of chronic HF, prevents the development of HF and reduces cardiovascular death following high-risk AMI compared to a proven angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. This paper describes the study design and baseline characteristics of patients enrolled in the Prospective ARNI vs. ACE inhibitor trial to DetermIne Superiority in reducing heart failure Events after Myocardial Infarction (PARADISE-MI) trial.
