The sum of ST-segment elevation is the best predictor of microvascular obstruction in patients treated successfully by primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance study.

Rev Esp Cardiol. 2010 Oct;63(10):1145-54, PMID: 20875354

The usefulness of ST-segment elevation resolution (STR) for predicting epicardial reperfusion is well established. However, it is still not clear how ST-segment changes are related to microvascular obstruction (MVO) observed by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
