BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Left atrium (LA) is an important biomarker of adverse cardiovascular outcomes and cerebrovascular events. This study aimed to evaluate LA myocardial deformation using cardiac magnetic resonance feature tracking (CMR-FT) in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and secondary mitral regurgitation (MR).(More)
Background Left atrium (LA) is an important predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Data related to LA functional changes during acute MR after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) are limited. CMR is rapidly evolving imaging modality and feature tracking becomes very promising technique for assessment of myocardial deformation.(More)
Background: Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is the preferred reperfusion strategy in acute STelevation myocardial infarction (MI), but is unclear what electrocardiographic (ECG) signs on admission show that it is too late to transfer the patients to a PCI-capable hospital. Therefore, we performed this exploratory study. Methods: A(More)
