INTRODUCTION Pathological left ventricular remodelling is considered the main cause of heart failure in patients after myocardial infarction. AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate correlations between the degree of coronary microvascular reperfusion assessed by means of the angiographic myocardial blush grade (MBG) scale and adverse left ventricular remodelling in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with primary coronary angioplasty. METHODS This study involved 92… CONTINUE READING
