Introduction: Left ventricular remodeling (LVR) is the most important consequence of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The aim of the study was to assess the value of free triiodothyronine (fT3) in the prediction of LVR after AMI and primary coronary angioplasty (PCI).Methods: Seventy patients (F/M=17/53, 61±11 years old) without recognized previous thyroid dysfunction and AMI were enrolled into the prospective observational study. Conventional and...
