) assesses the longitudinal, radial and circumferential regional deformation or ‘myocardial strain’. Global longitudinal strain (GLS) uses apical images which are more easily and reproducibly obtained than the parasternal images used for radial or

( 13 , 14 ). This underscores the importance of studying the anatomical and physiological changes of the left ventricle in patients with preserved LVEF in the early phase of AMI. Global longitudinal strain (GLS) is reproducible and easy to measure

. Therefore, it is crucial that the LVEF measurement should be accurate and have high reliability. LV global longitudinal strain (GLS), as assessed by 2D speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE), is another robust parameter for detecting latent LV dysfunction
