During and after myocardial infarction (MI), compensatory contractile and structural changes taking place in the remote uninvolved myocardial regions have been well described, in both experimental and clinical settings. However, quantitative information on the changes in perfusion in these regions in relation to their altered contractile function have not been available. This study was designed to assess the in vivo relationship between contractile function and perfusion in remote uninvolved… CONTINUE READING
