, Christian Echocardiography and Gated Single-Photon Emission CT Primary Angioplasty : Impact on Left Ventricular Function Assessed by Comprehensive Remote Ischemic Conditioning in Patients With Myocardial Infarction Treated With

Background—We have found that remote ischemic conditioning (rIC), adjunctive to primary angioplasty, increases myocardial salvage in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and extensive myocardial area at risk (AAR). The present substudy aimed to evaluate the short-term effects of rIC on left ventricular (LV) function. Methods and… CONTINUE READING
