CARDIOVASCULAR MEDICINE Myocardial performance index for assessment of left ventricular outcome in successfully recanalised anterior myocardial infarction


Objective: To investigate whether the myocardial performance index (MPI) can predict left ventricular functional outcome in patients with early recanalisation after anterior acute myocardial infarction (MI) and to determine when the index should be measured. Design: MPI was measured serially by two dimensional Doppler echocardiography after successful… (More)
