We defined the proportion of post-myocardial infarction patients who would have been eligible for the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial (MADIT) from a population of 94,797 patients with myocardial infarction entered into the Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial Registry. From this large population, only between 0.3% to 1.7% would have met strict eligibility criteria for MADIT.
