myocardial blush

An angiographic term referring to the adequacy of perfusion and blood flow through an area served by a coronary artery; the longer the blush persists, the poorer the blood flow

myocardial blush

Cardiology The angiographic opacification of the myocardial microvasculature or vessels, the size of which can be planimetered so that the total area of the blush can be determined

After aspiration thrombectomy, TIMI III flow and a myocardial blush grade (MBG) score of 2 were achieved (Fig.
There was no difference between the groups in the secondary endpoint of myocardial blush grade, which is an angiographic measure of blood flow to the cardiac muscle (MBG2/3 83.
The primary endpoints of the DEAR-MI study were a comparison of myocardial reperfusion according to ST-segment resolution and myocardial blush grade.
The next important step for operators is to ensure a high-quality result for their STEMI procedures, one that achieves an excellent myocardial blush grade, a compulsive thrombectomy and restoration of left ventricular function, and achieve such results with consistency both during working hours as well as during off hours and on weekends.
uA There was no difference between the groups in the secondary endpoint of myocardial blush grade (MBG), which is an angiographic measure of blood flow to the cardiac muscle (MBG2/3 83.
The primary endpoint is a combination of ST resolution, which is resolution of the EKG ST wave elevation injury pattern and the amount of distal embolization as measured by myocardial blush scores.
In patients presenting with an AMI, primary aspiration using the Export Aspiration Catheter is associated with a higher percentage of patients with ST segment resolution of greater than 50 percent at 60 minutes post procedure and/or a myocardial blush grade III immediately post-procedure than in patients with conventional stenting.
Another potential explanation of the borderline differences on serotonin levels observed in the present study may be found in the definition of no-reflow, indeed TIMI flow 3 may be also no-reflow if the Myocardial Blush Grade is 0-1.
