AIMS The aim of the present study was to evaluate the involvement of the right ventricle (RV) in reperfused anterior ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS AND RESULTS Left anterior descending (LAD)-perfused area (using thioflavin-S staining after selective infusion in proximal LAD artery, %), infarct size (using triphenyltetrazolium chloride(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were to characterize myocardial edema after ST-elevation acute myocardial infarction using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and to investigate its impact on ventricular function and its subsequent evolution. METHODS In total, 134 patients admitted to hospital for a first ST-elevation myocardial(More)
AIMS In patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) and iron deficiency, treatment with intravenous iron has shown a clinical improvement regardless of anaemic status. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) T2* sequence has shown a potential utility for evaluating myocardial iron deficiency. We aimed to evaluate whether T2* sequence(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The incremental prognostic value of inducible myocardial ischemia over necrosis derived by stress cardiac magnetic resonance in depressed left ventricular function is unknown. We determined the prognostic value of necrosis and ischemia in patients with depressed left ventricular function referred for dipyridamole stress perfusion(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES A variety of cardiac magnetic resonance indexes predict mid-term prognosis in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients. The extent of transmural necrosis permits simple and accurate prediction of systolic recovery. However, its long-term prognostic value beyond a comprehensive clinical and cardiac magnetic resonance(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES The prognosis of unstable angina varies between series depending on the inclusion criteria and management protocol used. The aim of this study was to analyze in-hospital events and their predictors in a homogeneous single-center series of patients with unstable angina. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 246 patients with the(More)
