Introduction First described in 1995 ( 1 ), the Tei index, also known as a myocardial performance index, is a ratio of systolic and diastolic time intervals which can be easily obtained from Doppler echocardiography. This timing ratio

. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by echocardiography is a widely used parameter to describe myocardial performance after an AMI. The risk stratification after AMI is recommended 6–12 weeks after the admission and LVEF <35% is currently the
