Introduction: The acute coronary events are one of the most common problems which are accounted to higher mortality and morbidity rate around the world. The underlying mechanism is related to occlusion, and the best therapy is to reopen the affected vessels. Many factors can influence the outcomes of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 845 cases with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) undergoing PCI for evaluation of the “No-Reflow” phenomenon who were referred to Shahid Madani hospital in 2018. All demographic, laboratory and angiographic studies were evaluated. The obtained data were recorded and analyzed by SPSS 21.Results: Among 845 patients with STEMI, the incidence of angiographic no-reflow was 28% (n = 245). The older cases with co-morbid diseases and cardiac-related risk factors were considered as vulnerable to no-reflow after PCI. The other parameters were partially decisive factors for the prediction of no-reflow and mortality rate, such as higher MPV and MPV to lymphocyte ratio. Conclusion: The coronary artery involvement is a troublesome event because of the established heart risk factors, and sometimes treating it with PCI could be complicated due to no-reflow. The simple predictors (i.e., MPV to lymphocyte ratio) could help us reduce morbidity and mortality.
