Aim. Myocardial performance index (MPI) is a well known prognostic parameter in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients, which has been used to assess global cardiac functions. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the corelation between the MPI levels obtained by PW doppler and Tissue doppler ultrasonography with reperfusion in AMI patients.
