  author={Sheng Kang and Yuejin Yang},
  journal={Clinical and investigative medicine. Medecine clinique et experimentale},
  volume={30 3},
PURPOSE To review (1) the mechanisms of coronary microvascular reperfusion injury, particularly in the relationships between microvascular endothelium dysfunction, microstructure damage, microemboli and no-reflow phenomena; (2) the no-reflow presentation and management at ischemia-reperfusion to suggest future direction for no-reflow therapy in acute myocardial infarction. SOURCES Original articles and reviews published between 1997 and 2007 and focusing on the no-reflow phenomenon in MEDLINE… CONTINUE READING
