Abstract

Background: It has been shown that normalisation of elevated ST segment after primary percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) is associated with the achievement of reperfusion at the tissue level.
Aim: To assess prospectively the return of left ventricular (LV) systolic function and the outcome of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI), treated with primary PCI, in relation to the early normalisation of the ST segment.
Methods: The study group consisted of 110 consecutive patients (33 females, 77 males, mean age 56 years) with AMI who were successfully treated with primary PCI (TIMI flow grade 3 and residual stenosis
