Abstract

Background: Fragmented QRS (fQRS) has been shown to be related to increased cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. However, limited data are available for evaluating the relationship between the number of leads with fQRS and in-hospital all-cause mortality in patients with acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The aim of our study is to investigate the prognostic importance of the number of leadswith fQRS in acute STEMI patients treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
