Collateral myocardial blush in inferior wall myocardial infarction: a new diagnostic tool to differentiate between occluded right coronary and circumflex arteries.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The infarct-related artery (IRA) in inferior wall myocardial infarction (IMI) may be problematic to identify due to occasional instances in which the right coronary (RCA) and left circumflex (CX) arteries are both occluded. We sought to investigate if impaired collateral myocardial blush (CMBG) identifies the correct IRA. METHODS Between 2002… (More)
