Elevated leukocyte count during ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction is associated with adverse clinical outcomes. Whether increased leukocyte count after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) directly reflects larger infarct size and left ventricular impairment is not known. The aim of this study was to assess the relation between leukocyte and neutrophil counts with infarct size and the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) after primary PCI.
