OBJECTIVES This study investigated the safety profile and potential "therapeutic" effect of intravenous ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron-oxide (USPIO)-based iron administration regarding infarct healing in patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). USPIO-administration was recently shown to enable an improved characterization of myocardial infarct pathology in acute STEMI patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventeen study patients (IRON, 54 ± 9 yrs, 88% male) and 22 matched… CONTINUE READING
