Basel Antiarrhythmic Study of Infarct
Battelle’s Automated Search Information System

Clinical trials
Basel Antiarrhythmic Study of Infarct Survival. A Swiss trial assessing the effects of antiarrhythmics—primarily amiodarone—on morbidity and mortality in survivors of acute MI with asymptomatic complex ventricular ectopy/Lown class-3 or 4b arrhythmias by Holter monitoring, comparing efficacy of individualised antiarrhythmic therapy vs low-dose amiodarone vs no drug therapy.
 
Conclusion
Low-dose amiodarone significantly reduces the incidence of arrhythmic events and mortality in the 1st post-MI year in patients with left ventricular ejection fraction ≥ 40%, without increasing adverse effects; amiodarone’s benefits continued for years after discontinuing the drug—the risk of death after 84 months was 30% in amiodarone patients and 45% in untreated patients. 

Logistics
Randomised, 3-centre Swiss trial; 312 patients—100 individual treatment, 98 amiodarone, 114 none.

Selection criteria
Survivors of acute MI, < age 71 with ventricular ectopy on Holter, monitoring 24 hours after discontinuing antiarrhythmic agents.
