Percutaneous treatment of chronic total coronary occlusions improves regional hyperemic myocardial blood flow and contractility: insights from quantitative cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate temporal changes in contractility and hyperemic and resting myocardial blood flow (MBF) in dependent and remote myocardium after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of chronic total occlusions (CTOs) by using cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. BACKGROUND: Data about the physiological consequences of revascularization of CTOs are limited. The use of CMR allows investigation of the regional effects of revascularization on MBF and left vent...
