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.
