OBJECTIVE
We aimed to investigate whether lower thiol levels are associated with the peri-procedural factors during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) at the admission of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or not, and their prognostic value at six-month follow-up.

METHODS
We enrolled 241 consecutive acute STEMI patients who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) and a control group of 67 individuals with normal coronary angiography.

RESULTS
While age, contrast induced nephropathy, NT-proBNP, stent length and creatinine were related to native thiol, NT-proBNP, contrast induced nephropathy, and creatinine were related to total thiol. NT-proBNP was related to the disulphide levels. The left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), native thiol, total thiol, LDL and serum albumin were found to be independent predictors of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) during 6 months of follow up.

CONCLUSION
Initial lower native thiol, total thiol, LVEF, LDL and serum albumin may be used to identify patients with an increased long-term risk of unfavourable cardiac events in case of STEMI.
