BACKGROUND: This study was undertaken to determine the myocardial function using Doppler tissue imaging in patients with acute myocardial infarction and to correlate the mitral E/E' velocity ratio with die patients' Killip classification of congestive heart failure secondary to acute myocardial infarction (AMI). 60 patients with AMI either a non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) or ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) were studied. Ejection fraction (EF), transmitral and pulmonic vein velocities, and mitral annular velocities were measured by conventional echocardiography and Doppler tissue imaging (DTI), respectively. These values were correlated with the Killip heart failure classification of the patients. 39(65 percent) patients had NSTEMI and 21(35 percent) patients had STEMI. There were no significant difference in mitral annular and pulmonic vein velocities in subjects with NSTEMI and STEMI with EF50 percent. The mitral E/A ratio and E/E' ratio were significantly higher in the NSTEMI EF>50 percent group. The E/E' ratio was correlated widi the Killip classification categories. Post hoc tests showed an E/E' ratio of
