Serial magnetic resonance imaging of global and regional left ventricular remodeling during 1 year after acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

Biplane long-axis cine MRI was performed in 51 patients 1, 13, 26, and 52 weeks after their first AMI. LV mass index (LVMI) was significantly increased 1 week after AMI (84.3 +/- 16.9 vs. 68.1 +/- 11.4 g/m(2) controls, n = 48, p < 0.001), presumably owing to edema of the infarcted myocardium. Six months after AMI, LVMI decreased to 76.5 +/- 16.4 g/m(2), but… (More)
