We investigated 26 patients admitted to our catheterization laboratory with a diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. In each case acute revascularization was unsuccessful, but the diagnosis was confirmed by angiography. In 11 patients with an uncomplicated course of acute myocardial infarction magnetic resonance imaging was carried out within 7 days of the acute event. In three additional cases imaging was performed within 3 weeks, while a remaining 12 patients underwent studies more than 3… CONTINUE READING
