Prognostic power of global 2D strain according to left ventricular ejection fraction in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction

BACKGROUNDS We aimed to evaluate the predictive power of longitudinal and circumferential fibers according to left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) in successfully reperfused acute ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients. METHODS Total 691 patients (age 59±13, 20% female) underwent clinical evaluation and conventional and strain… CONTINUE READING
