Tei Index: Assessment of the Myocardial Function of the Left Ventricle in Case of Acute Myocardial Infarction
135 patients with acute myocardial infarction and ST segment elevation were examined, their age was from 27 to 69 (average age 52,06±7,33 years). Reliable increase of TEI index was noticed at the beginning of the disease, pointing onto distinct aggravation of systolic and diastolic functions of the left ventricle. Inverse correlation was detected between this index and ejection fraction of the left ventricle. It was established, that prognostic value of the TEI index related to in-hospital complications was higher than OE LV, and its value ≥0,49 might be used for stratification of the patients with higher risk of adverse events during the in hospital treatment stage.
