PROGNOSTIC SIGNIFICANCE OF MICROVASCULAR OBSTRUCTION AND INFARCT SIZE MEASURED BY CARDIOVASCULAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF LEFT VENTRICULAR REMODELING IN PATIENTS WITH ST-SEGMENT ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION: INSIGHT FROM A POOLED ANALYSIS OF INDIVIDUAL PATIENT DATA

Left ventricular (LV) remodeling is a precursor of the development of heart failure and is an important predictor of mortality after STelevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The aim of this study was to determine whether microvascular obstruction and infarct size (IS%LV), assessed by contrast-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CE-CMR) early after STEMI, were predictive of LV remodeling in a collaborative individual patient-data pooled analysis.
