  • No adjustments have been made for multiple comparisons.

  • CTFC of occluded arteries imputed at the maximum value of patent arteries (244).

  • legend CTFC = corrected TIMI frame count; EDVI = end-diastolic volume index; ESVI = end-systolic volume index; HDL = high-density lipoprotein; IRA=LAD = infarct related artery-left anterior descending coronary artery; TIMI = Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction.
