OBJECTIVES This study sought to compare infarct size (IS) measured by magnetic resonance imaging in patients with successful (myocardial blush grade [MBG] 2/3) versus unsuccessful (MBG 0/1) microcirculatory reperfusion in the INFUSE-AMI (Intracoronary Abciximab and Aspiration Thrombectomy in Patients With Large Anterior Myocardial Infarction) trial. BACKGROUND Successful microcirculatory reperfusion, defined angiographically by MBG 2 or 3, is associated with improved outcomes in patients with… CONTINUE READING
