Background-Connection between the course of microvascular and infarct remodeling processes over time after reperfused ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction has not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study is to investigate the association of temporal changes in hemodynamics of microcirculation in the infarcted territory and infarct size (IS) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention in patients with ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction.
