BACKGROUND ST-segment elevation (SigmaSTe) recovery and the angiographic myocardial blush (MB) grade are useful markers of microvascular reperfusion after recanalization of the infarct-related artery. We investigated the ability of a combined analysis of MB grade and SigmaSTe changes to identify different patterns of myocardial reperfusion shortly after(More)
BACKGROUND Residual viable myocardium identified by dobutamine stress after myocardial infarction may act as an unstable substrate for further events such as subsequent angina and reinfarction. However, in patients with severe global left ventricular dysfunction, viability might be protective rather than detrimental. The aim of this study was to assess the(More)
The lack of callosal fibres between homotopic areas of the hand in the sensorimotor cortex in man and its possible functional correlates were investigated in normal adult subjects by comparing simple reaction times (RTs) of voluntary movements triggered by a somaesthetic stimulus to the same or opposite side of the body. An air jet was delivered to the skin(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic value of myocardial viability recognized as a contractile response to vasodilator stimulation in patients with left ventricular dysfunction in a large scale, prospective, multicentre, observational study. METHODS AND RESULTS Three hundred and seven patients (mean age 60 +/- 10 years) with(More)
