AIMS To investigate whether myocardial contrast echocardiography using Sonazoid could be used for the serial evaluation of the presence and extent of myocardial perfusion defects in patients with a first acute myocardial infarction treated with primary PTCA, and specifically, (1) to evaluate safety and efficacy of myocardial contrast echocardiography to detect TIMI flow grade 0--2, (2) to evaluate the success of reperfusion and (3) to predict left ventricular recovery after 4 weeks follow-up… CONTINUE READING
