PRIMARY VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION AND RESUMPTION OF WORK, SEXUAL ACTIVITY, AND DRIVING AFTER FIRST ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION

The resumption of work, sexual activity, and driving were studied in 32 patients who had suffered primary ventricular fibrillation after their first myocardial infarction. They were compared with 95 patients whose myocardial infarction was not so complicated. Though initially slowing rehabilitation, primary ventricular fibrillation did not affect ultimately either the return to work or the resumption of normal sexual activity and driving. (A) /TRRL/
