The index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR) emerges as a valuable prognostic tool in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronay intervention (PPCI). An IMR value more than 40 at the end of the procedure has been related with worse outcomes. In the
