Background:In a large number of primary percutaneous coronary intervention patients,
angiographic non-reflow and slow flow phenomena are observed in recent developments in
interventional equipment and techniques (PCI). In ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial
Infarction (STEMI), we have investigated clinical, electrocardiographic preoperative
findings that could predict a slow flow / no-reflow in patients treated with PCI, as well as
predictor and effect of slow flux / no-reflow during hospital stays and short-term results.
Aim:Identifying the pre-procedure, clinical, electrocardiographic findings that may predict a
slow flow/no-reflow in PCI-treated STEMI patients and identifying adverse clinical event
predictors while in the hospital and the short-term in a slow flow/no-reflow population.
Patients and Methods:The study included 72 patients divided into 2 groups, slow-flow / nonreflow
group I and normal-flow group II. All were monitored for three months after PCI.

Background:Despite recent advances in interventional equipment and techniques, the angiographic no-reflow and slow flow phenomenons occurs in a considerable number of patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We investigated the clinical, electrocardiographic, pre procedural finding that could predict slow flow/ no reflow in ST-segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) patients treated with PCI, also to detect predictors and impact of slow flow/ no reflow during hospital stay and short term outcome of such patients Aim: To identify the clinical, electrocardiographic, pre procedural finding that could predict slow flow/ no reflow in STEMI patients treated with PCI and to determine predictors of adverse clinical events during hospital stay and short term in slow flow /no reflow group. Patients and Methods: Thestudy included 72 patients who were divided into 2 groups, group I with slow flow/no reflow and group II with normal flow. All of them were subjected to follow up for 3months after PCI.
