Analysis of post-infarction salvaged myocardium by cardiac magnetic resonance. Predictors and influence on adverse ventricular remodeling.

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate by cardiovascular magnetic resonance those factors related to the amount of salvaged myocardium after a myocardial infarction and its value in predicting adverse ventricular remodeling. METHODS One hundred eighteen patients admitted for a first ST elevation myocardial infarction (primary angioplasty, 65 patients; a… (More)
