Intravenous morphine administration and reperfusion success in ST-elevation myocardial infarction: insights from cardiac magnetic resonance imaging


Intravenous (IV) morphine has been shown to be independently associated with adverse clinical outcome in patients with non-STEMI. Currently, there are no data on the association of IV morphine and reperfusion success in STEMI. Thus, we thought to analyse the impact of IV morphine on ischemic injury and salvaged myocardium assessed by cardiac magnetic… (More)
