OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the long-term prognostic value of the global longitudinal strain of the right ventricle (GLSRV) in patients with inferior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND RV systolic dysfunction is an important prognostic factor in patients with inferior STEMI. METHODS All consecutive inferior STEMI patients were included from January 2005 to December 2013. RV systolic… CONTINUE READING
