Effects of successful intravenous reperfusion therapy on regional myocardial function and geometry in humans: a tomographic assessment using two-dimensional echocardiography.

Abstract

This study tested the hypothesis that reperfusion therapy might provide benefit at two levels: 1) by arresting infarct migration at the endocardial level, such that partial or complete recovery of regional function occurs; and 2) if the former is not achieved, by preventing complete or near complete transmural migration and subsequent infarct expansion.
