LV End-diastolic Volume Index Did Not Change With Bioresorbable Cardiac Matrix
from The Cardiology Advisor
Despite successful reperfusion after large myocardial infarction, bioabsorbable cardiac matrix did not reduce adverse left ventricular remodeling or cardiac events, according to data published in the
Journal of the American College of Cardiology
. In PRESERVATION I (Prevention of Remodeling of the Ventricle and Congestive Heart Failure After Acute Myocardial Infarction) clinical trial,
Sunil V. Rao, MD
, of the Duke Clinical Research Institute in Durham, North Carolina, and colleagues compared bioabsorbable cardiac matrix against saline to analyze left ventricle dilation and adverse events between baseline and six months.
