Myocardial Salvage Assessed by Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance - Impact on Outcome

This study has been completed.

University of Leipzig Identifier:
First received: August 3, 2009
Last updated: August 4, 2009
Last verified: August 2009
In acute myocardial infarction cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging can retrospectively detect the myocardium at risk and the irreversible injury. This allows for quantifying the extent of salvaged myocardium after reperfusion as a potential strong end point for clinical trials and outcome. The aim of the present study is to determine the prognostic significance and determinants of myocardial salvage assessed by CMR in reperfused ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
