Abstract

No reflow after primary percutaneous coronary intervention is a dynamic process and its reversibility may affect left ventricular (LV) remodeling. We aimed at assessing in-hospital evolution of angiographic no reflow, predictors of its reversibility, and its impact on LV function at follow-up (FU).
