STUDY OBJECTIVES Assessment of global myocardial performance by a single index (ie, the myocardial performance index [MPI]) has been suggested as an appealing alternative to the individual assessment of systolic and diastolic left ventricular (LV) function We sought to test the prognostic value of MPI in comparison to clinical characteristics and echocardiographic parameters of LV filling and ejection in acute myocardial infarction (AMI). PATIENTS Four hundred seventeen consecutive patients… CONTINUE READING
