Improvement of myocardial function and perfusion after successful percutaneous revascularization in patients with chronic total coronary occlusion.

Int. J. Cardiol.. 2013 Oct;169(2):147-52, PMID: 24120215

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for chronic total occlusion (CTO) of a coronary artery can provide benefits in terms of myocardial function and survival but the procedure is complex and the success rate is relatively low. To assess these benefits, myocardial function, ischemia and viability should be clearly determined by means of a reliable diagnostic test. This study aimed to assess ventricular function and myocardial ischemia before and after PCI for CTO using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). NYHA functional class was also assessed before and after PCI.
