BACKGROUND Studies of prognostic markers after first anterior wall acute myocardial infarction (AMI) have reported an association between persistent ST segment elevation on the electrocardiogram (ECG) and increased levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and worse outcome. The aim of the present study was to determine the nature of the relationship between these two factors. METHODS Twenty-three consecutive patients admitted with AMI underwent 12-lead ECG on days 1, 2, 3 and 7 and were classified… CONTINUE READING
