The reduced right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) has prognostic value for predicting cardiovascular mortality in patients with left ventricular acute myocardial infarction (LVAMI). Previous studies have shown that interaction between left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV). This study used CMR to further explore what factors affect the RVEF. The results shown that the incidence of reduced RVEF was 40% in LVAMI patients and the occurrence of reduced RVEF was associated with LVEF, LV end-systolic volume index and RV end-systolic volume index.
