Introduction: ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is a significant contributor to mortality. The identification of high-risk patients holds great importance for prognosis. The development of a scoring system that incorporates both inflammatory and nutritional status components can provide valuable insights into prognosis.

Patients and Methods: This is a retrospective observational study comprising 570 consecutive ST-elevation myocardial infarction patients who underwent primary coronary intervention between 2018 and 2020. Patient data were obtained from the electronic database of the hospital.

Results: The incidence of in-hospital mortality rate was 4.9%. The entire group was then divided into two groups based on the presence of in-hospital mortality: 542 patients without in-hospital mortality constituted group 1, while 28 patients with in-hospital mortality formed group 2. In the multivariate logistic regression analysis, the Naples score was identified as an independent predictor of in-hospital mortality.

Conclusion: A higher Naples score is associated with increased in-hospital mortality in patients with STelevation myocardial infarction who undergo primary coronary intervention.
