Purpose: The aim of the study is to investigate the predictive value of GRACE score for left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) after acute anterior segment acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Despite rapid and complete reperfusion in AMI, inadequate recovery of left ventricular function may result in a decrease in LVEF.
