RESULTS: Median APS was 7.5 points. APS ≥ 10 was present in 42% of patients. The significant correlation was found between APS and: CMR infarct size (r = - 0.48; P = 0.0001), CMR left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (r = 0.5; P = 0.002), LV end-diastolic volume index (r = - 0.37; P = 0.004), LV end-systolic volume index (r = -0.41; P = 0.001), NT pro-BNP (r = - 0.5; P = 0.02). Patients with APS ≥ 10 had significantly lower infarct size, LV volumes, higher EF and lower NT pro-BNP. APS assessed in patients with STEMI treated with PCI is a good predictor of infarct size and left ventricular function in 6-month follow-up.
