BACKGROUND The objective of the study was to determine the coronary vasodilatory reserve in reperfused myocardium in patients with acute myocardial infarction and its relation to regional myocardial function. METHODS AND RESULTS The study population consisted of 22 patients with acute myocardial infarction who underwent successful coronary angioplasty. The vasodilatory reserve in the reperfused myocardium was assessed quantitatively using computer-assisted digital subtraction cine-angiography… CONTINUE READING
