This study evaluated the effect of restrictive filling pattern (RFP) on 5-year outcomes in patients following ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). A hundred STEMI patients treated either by rescue or primary percutaneous coronary intervention with an echocardiogram performed within 6 weeks of STEMI comprised the study group. Creatinine kinase (CK) and left ventricular ejection fraction were independent determinants of RFP, and RFP was an independent predictor of cardiac and all-cause mortality at median follow up of 5 years.
