Abstract [en]

A double-blind trial with the beta 1-selective blocker metoprolol in suspected acute myocardial infarction and during 3 months' follow-up included 1395 patients, aged 40-74 years, 698 on metoprolol and 697 on placebo. In order to further evaluate the tolerability to beta-blockade in the elderly, the total series was divided into 2 groups according to median age (61 years) and into quartiles, the lowest quartile (40-57 years) being compared with the highest (67-74 years). The decrease in heart rate and systolic blood pressure after intravenous metoprolol in the acute phase was similar in the elderly and the younger patients. Hypotension was observed more often in the metoprolol-treated than in the placebo-treated younger patients, while no difference was observed in the elderly. Bradycardia was observed more often in the metoprolol group in both age groups, while there was no difference regarding the incidence of congestive heart failure in either the younger or in the elderly patients. The effect on mortality, serious ventricular arrhythmias and chest pain seemed to be similar in different age groups. From the present series we conclude that hemodynamic reactions and tolerability to beta-blockade can be expected to be similar in elderly and younger patients.
