BackgroundTo our knowledge, no study so far investigated the importance of post-procedural frontal QRS-T angle f(QRS-T) in ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The aim of our study was to investigate the role of baseline and post-procedural f(QRS-T) angles for determining high risk STEMI patients, and the success of reperfusion.
