KoMPiS is a contrast aided cardiac magnetic resonance study of microvascular obstruction and left ventricular remodelling following acute revascularised anterior myocardial infarction. The study will monitor the included patients for 12 months following the acute myocardial infarct and collect data from MR scans and blood samples. The study is designed to demonstrate that obstruction of blood flow in the peripheral (small) vessels of the cardiac muscle is an important factor in the post-MI development of left ventricle dysfunction that occurs in many patients, despite of a successful re-opening of the occluded coronary artery that caused the MI.

Study Population
Patients admited with AMi and rescue PCI.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men or women > 18 years of age, non-child bearing potential
  • First time acute myocardial infarction, as determined by evidence of transmural ischemia in the ECG and a rise in cardiac-Troponin-T (TNT) > 0,1 (μg/l), followed by
  • A successful acute PCI of a single vessel disease with a proximal/mid left anterior descent artery (LAD), circumflex artery (RCX) or right coronary artery (RCA) lesion (the index PCI).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Extensive cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
  • Haemodynamically unstable patients, unable to leave the coronary care unit for the CMR examination.
  • Use of fibrinolytics immediately prior to the index PCI.
  • Significant primary valve disease,
  • Autoimmune disease causing an increase in collagen turnover
  • Active cancer disease
  • Need for immunosuppressive treatment,
  • Significantly reduced liver function
  • Contraindications for performing a cardiac MRI-scan (claustrophobia, and implanted ferromagnetic devices, known allergic reactions to Omniscan™).
  • Inability to understand the consent form or cooperate during the 1 year follow up.
  • Comorbidity with poor prognosis.
