Transvalvular Ventricular Unloading Before Reperfusion in Acute Myocardial Infarction

Swain, L., et al. (2020). New approaches to limit myocardial infarct size and reduce progression to heart failure after STEMI are needed. Mechanically reducing left ventricular (LV) workload (LV unloading) before coronary reperfusion is emerging as a potential approach to reduce infarct size. …………………………… ……………………. ……………………………… ………………. ……………. ……….. …………. ………………………………………………………………………….
