Assessment of Regional Viability in the Infarct Zone Following Myocardial Infarction


The goal of reperfusion strategies in patients with acute myocardial infarction is to salvage myocardium within the infarct zone at risk from the acute occlusion. The status of wall motion and thickening within the infarct zone is an imprecise guide to the extent of salvage and viability within the infarct zone, based on the well-described phenomenon of… (More)
