Effect of Intracoronary Aqueous Oxygen on Left Ventricular Remodeling After Anterior Wall ST-Elevation Acute Myocardial Infarction

      The present report describes outcomes of randomized selective intracoronary aqueous oxygen versus standard care in patients who had acute anterior wall myocardial infarction within 6 hours of onset (n = 50). Left ventricular (LV) dimensions and function were assessed by contrast echocardiography at baseline and 1 month. It is demonstrated that aqueous oxygen prevents LV remodeling and preserves LV ejection fraction.
