The study aim is to evaluate the capability of mechanocardiography in detecting acute myocardial ischemia in patients suffering evolving ST-segment elevation infarction.


Subsequent patients with ST-segment elevation assigned to the Turku University Hospital Heart Center cathlab for primary percutaneous coronary intervention are enrolled in the study. A 2 to 15 minutes mechanocardiographic recording is acquired before the intervention. A control recording is collected after the coronary intervention, within 24 hours. These recordings are compared and the results analyzed to determine the ability of this novel modality to discriminate between the two circumstances.
