AIMS The time-to-treatment, ST-segment resolution (STR), and TIMI-flow might be associated with infarct size (IS) and infarct transmurality in humans. Delayed enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (DE-MRI) has excellent spatial resolution to uncover these relations. METHODS AND RESULTS This study analysed 135 ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients randomized to prehospital fibrinolysis or prehospital initiated facilitated percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Reperfusion… CONTINUE READING
