3D left atrial volume (LAV) and left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony in patients of acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent primary Percutaneous intervention (PCI). Background: Various biochemical (eg. NT-proBNP) and echocardiographic parameters (eg. LV dyssychrony and Left atrial volume) of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have been associated with response to PCI and predict the short and long-term prognosis. Methods: This prospective study consisted of 142

Left ventricular dyssynchrony was measured by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and LAV by real time 3D-echocardiography, plasma NT-proBNP levels estimated between 72-96 hours of admission. Results: During study period 3 patients expired and 4 patients
