Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to investigate the relationship of tirofiban, added to the treatment of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), with changes in the TIMI risk index (TRI) of TIMI flow, B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels.
