Further study details as provided by CHI St. Luke's Health, Texas:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To examine whether the extent of irreversible myocardial injury as assessed by Delayed Enhancement Magnetic Resonance Imaging can predict the extent of functional recovery after revascularization in patients with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD). [ Time Frame: 36 months ]

Enrollment: 235
Study Start Date: August 2003
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients were recruited from 9 institutions on 3 different continent. All patients recruited for the study had a history of angiographically documented chronic coronary artery disease and resting wall motion abnormalities, and were scheduled for cardiac revascularization (coronary artery bypass surgery or percutaneous intervention).

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age: > 21 years and < 85 years
  • Sinus rhythm
  • Weight < 120 kg
  • LVEF > 30%
  • Wall motion abnormality on Echo. or LV-gram
  • Scheduled for revascularization - Angioplasty/Stent or CABG - within 30 days

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Resting heart rate > 100 bpm
  • Frequent atrial or ventricular ectopy
  • Severe aortic stenosis or HOCM
  • Unstable angina
  • Myocardial infarction within 14 days
  • Active congestive heart failure
  • Pregnancy
  • Known allergy to gadolinium
  • Contraindication to MRI
