AIMS Primary angioplasty for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is recommended only if symptom duration is <12 h. We evaluated final infarct size (FIS) and myocardial salvage in early presenters (<12 h) vs. late presenters (12-72 h) undergoing primary angioplasty. METHODS AND RESULTS Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) was performed acutely to assess area at risk (AAR) before angioplasty and repeated after 30 days to assess FIS (% of LV myocardium), salvage index (% non… CONTINUE READING
