Abstract

The association between admission electrocardiogram and 6-month change in left ventricular function and volume was assessed in 200 patients who had acute myocardial infarction that was treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Logistic regression analysis indicated peak creatine phosphokinase-MB, number of Q-wave leads, QRS interval distortion, wall motion score index, and angiographic Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction flow grade as predictors of no functional recovery and QRS interval distortion and Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction flow grade as predictors of left ventricular remodeling.
