Objectives: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between left ventricular thrombus (LVT) developments and the SYNTAX score (SS) in patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) for first anterior wall ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Methods: We enrolled 160 patients. All participants were evaluated by serial transthoracic echocardiography. Baseline clinical, echocardiographic, and procedural features of PPCI were analyzed to find predictors of LVT development. Results: The LVT was detected in 32 (20%) patients. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and SS-I were found to be independent predictors of LVT development. Receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis revealed a cutoff value >19.5 for SS-I (area under the curve: 0.697, 95% confidence interval 0.620-0.767, P < .001) with a specificity of 45.3% and a sensitivity of 84.3%. Conclusion: High SS which was obtained through diagnostic angiogram of PPCI may be associated with LVT development in patients with first anterior wall STEMI.
