Abstract

Background: SYNTAX score (SXscore) has been developed to assess the severity and complexity of coronary artery disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether baseline SXscore was associated with contrast induced nephropathy (CIN) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (p-PCI) in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Secondarily we aimed to investigate the relation of the severity of CIN to long term prognosis.
