Objectives The prognostic value of pentraxin 3 (PTX3) has been documented in patients with acute coronary syndrome. However, its long-term prognostic value in acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of PTX3 in patients with STEMI undergoing a primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
