THERAPY AND PREVENTION CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE Return of left ventricular function after reperfusion in patients with myocardial infarction: importance

Abstract

To determine whether subsequent improvement in left ventricular ejection fraction can be predicted from preintervention coronary arteriograms, we divided 63 patients with acute myocardial infarction into two groups based on findings at emergency coronary arteriography at a mean of 7 hr after onset of symptoms: (1) a "no-flow" group with an occluded infarct… (More)
