Özet

Assessment of microvascular function after reperfused acute myocardial infarction (AMI) provides important insights for myocardial reperfusion and facilitates prediction of long-term left ventricular (LV) function and clinical outcome. In this study, we examined microvascular integrity 48 h after successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and compared predictive accuracy of the intracoronary pressure-wire- and transthoracic Doppler echocardiography-based parameters in the estimation of long-term LV infarct size and function.
