  • OBJECTIVES The no-reflow phenomenon has a negative prognostic value in patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The SYNTAX score (SS) quantifies the extent and complexity of angiographic disease and predicts long-term mortality and morbidity in STEMI. We aimed to assess the no-reflow and its possible relationships with SS and clinical characteristics in patients with STEMI treated with a primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI).
