Prognostic value of microvascular damage determined by cardiac magnetic resonance in non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction: comparison between first-pass and late gadolinium-enhanced images.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To compare 2 cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) techniques for the evaluation of the prognostic significance of microvascular damage after non ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). MATERIALS AND METHODS CMR was performed at 3T in 61 patients within the week following their first NSTEMI. A first-pass saturation-recovery gradient… (More)
