In line with other studies (25), we found that LAD as an infarct-related artery led to a higher incidence of left ventricular systolic dysfunction, which means that patients with complete revascularization after STEMI and with single-vessel disease affecting LAD were at a higher risk (odds ratio 4 times higher).
