Background:Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the top most cause of death in the world. As per world health organization (WHO), greater number of people die of CVDs than any other cause.Out of the CVDs predominant mortality is attributed to coronary artery disease(CAD) which includes stable CAD and unstable CAD (which can manifest as unstable angina, NSTEMI or STEMI) . Hence the present study was undertaken at our tertiary care centre to assess different indices of RV function by Echocardiography within 48 hours of onset of symptoms in 1st episode of acute IWMI and to correlate it with the site of lesion in CAG.
