Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Myocardial perfusion, when assessed by myocardial blush grade (MBG) is an independent predictor of major adverse cardiac outcomes. The terminal part of repolarization, measured as the interval from the peak to the end of the T wave (Tpe), is a relatively novel indicator of ventricular arrhythmias. The relations between MBG and Tpe interval have not been examined before. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between MBG and Tpe and Tpe/QT ratio after successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
