    Measurement of serum-ionised magnesium has recently become available, and we report the first study of the relation of this parameter to arrhythmias, left ventricular function and mortality in patients with an acute myocardial infarction. Serum-ionised magnesium was determined in 217 consecutive patients admitted to hospital with an enzyme confirmed AMI. 70 healthy subjects acted as a control group. The main study parameters were occurrence of arrhythmias, left ventricular function estimated by echocardiography, and mortality after 10 months for the AMI patients. AMI patients had significantly lower serum-ionised magnesium compared to healthy controls but the level of serum-ionised magnesium in the acute phase of a MI was neither related to arrhythmias, left ventricular function nor mortality.
