In this study, we perfored first-pass contrast-enhanced (FPCE) myocardial perfusion in a serial follow-up to determine the timing, magnitude and transmural difference of myocardial perfusion recovery by evaluating the change in stress perfusion, rest perfusion, and myocardial perfusion reserve (MPR).We have demonstrated that the myocardial perfusion in the ischemic regions can be restored as early as 24 hours after PCI, and perfusion in the inner wall of the myocardium improves more significantly than that in the outer wall.
