In order to clarify the assess the right ventricular (RV) function changes and recovery and the relationship with different culprit vessel for myocardial infarction (MI) patients on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). We prospectively recruited forty-nine MI patients and 20 healthy control, all them underwent CMR to analysis right ventricular (RV) function and global strain. Our results showed that, the RV function was related to whether the culprit vessel was RCA or not, and even RCA was obstructed the RV global strain can significantly recovery at chronic phase.
