Ability of the no-reflow phenomenon during an acute myocardial infarction to predict left ventricular dysfunction at one-month follow-up.

Abstract

Despite angiographically successful opening of an infarct-related vessel within a 6-hour time frame, some patients do not recover left ventricular regional wall function in the infarct zone after an acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Recent evidence suggests that this finding is due to the no-reflow phenomenon, or failure to recover tissue perfusion despite… (More)
