Abstract

Aims: In patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), low serum triiodothyronine (T3) concentration is commonly associated with a severe clinical course. The aim of this prospective study was to investigate whether a severe clinical course in patients with low T3 is related to the magnitude of myocardial injury assessed by echocardiography.
Methods and Results: Out of 635 patients with MI we enrolled 100 consecutive patients. They were divided in two subgroups: group A, 81 patients without clinical hard events (death, resuscitation following ventricular tachycardia/vertricular fibrillation, new MI) and group B, 19 patients in whom at least one of the above hard events occurred during hospital stay. Thyroid function tests were performed on day 1, 4 and 7, echocardiographic examinations measuring asynergic area (AA), and wall motion score index (WMSI) between day 1 and 5 (median 3). A negative correlation was found between plasma free triiodothyronine (FT3), concentration and AA (p
