Despite proved efficacy of pressure-derived collateral flow index in determining microvascular dysfunction in patients with acute myocardial infarction, its role in prediction of left ventricular remodeling at long term has yet to be demonstrated. In this study, we investigated the relationship between quantitatively assessed microvascular dysfunction by using intracoronary pressure wire and late left ventricular remodeling.
