This article is from PLoS ONE, volume 9.AbstractObjectives: We assessed the value of speckle tracking imaging performed early after a first ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction STEMI in order to predict infarct size and functional recovery at 3-month follow-up. Methods: 44 patients with STEMI who underwent revascularization within 12 h of symptom onset were prospectively enrolled. Echocardiography was performed 3.9±1.2 days after myocardial reperfusion, assessing circumferential CGS, radial RGS, and longitudinal global GLS strains. Late gadolinium-enhanced cardiac magnetic imaging CMR, for assessing cardiac function, infarct size, and microvascular obstruction MVO, was conducted 5.6±2.5 days and 99.4±4.6 days after myocardial reperfusion. Results: GLS was evaluable in 97% of the patients, while CGS and RGS could be assessed in 85%. Infarct size significantly correlated with GLS R = 0.601, p
