OBJECTIVES We examined the relation between angiographic, electrocardiographic, and gadolinium-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) characteristics of microvascular obstruction (MVO), and their predictive value on functional recovery after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). BACKGROUND Microvascular obstruction on CMR has been shown to predict left ventricular (LV) remodeling, but it is not well known how it compares with commonly used criteria of microvascular injury, and earlier… CONTINUE READING
