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 percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Left ventricular function was evaluated by echocardiography and left ventriculography. To assess… CONTINUE READING
