BackgroundFragmented QRS complex (fQRS) is associated with worse outcomes in several cardiovascular conditions. However, alterations in fQRS in patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and association of fQRS with myocardial blush grade (MBG) has not been investigated until now. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of MBG after primary PCI with evolution of fQRS.
