Prognostic value of reverse left ventricular remodeling after primary angioplasty for STEMI
Atherosclerosis, 05/09/2012Carrabba N et al.
Reverse left ventricular (LV) remodeling occurred in half of successfully reperfused ST–elevation acute myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients. Small structural and functional myocardial damages within the infarct zone are the major determinants of reverse LV remodeling. As expression of effective myocardial salvage by P–PCI, the reverse remodeling is an important predictor of favorable long–term outcome.
