Right Ventricular Ischemic Injury in Patients With Acute ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction: Characterization With Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance
Background— Experimental data show that the right ventricle (RV) is more resistant to ischemia than the left ventricle. To date, limited data are available in humans because of the difficulty ofExpand

Prevalence and Prognostic Value of Concealed Structural Abnormalities in Patients With Apparently Idiopathic Ventricular Arrhythmias of Left Versus Right Ventricular Origin: A Magnetic Resonance
Background—Routine diagnostic work-up occasionally does not identify any abnormality among patients with monomorphic ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) of left ventricular (LV) origin. Aim of this studyExpand
