Serum free fatty acid (FFA) levels measured in 72 patients with on acute myocardial infarction have been related to preva­lence of arrhythmias, the clinical state of patients and to the serum enzyme levels. Maximum elevation of serum FFA occurred within eight hours in most patients after acute myocardial infarction. Those with a striking elevation (above 1200 mEq/L) had an increased prevalence of serious arrhythmias and disorder of conduction. There was no correlation between serum FFA and clinical state of patients, except for cardio genie shock nor between serum FFA and serum glutamic oxaloacetic transminase levels, nor between serum enzyme levels and the prevalence of arrhythmias.
