Although it is the gold standard for evaluating coronary patency, angiography represents a "snapshot" of coronary patency; this technique is not a definitive indicator because it cannot measure how long the documented perfusion status has existed in the infarct-related artery either before or after imaging, which would influence washout.

To the best of our knowledge, the relationship between plasma homocysteine level and infarct-related artery (IRA) flow in patients receiving fibrinolytic therapy was not investigated before.
No-reflow indicates poor perfusion to the myocardial tissue despite an absence of occlusion in the infarct-related artery (12).
Factors with an impact on recovery are the extent of the infarction, the flow in the infarct-related artery, asynergy and elevated wall stress (11).
In addition to its rigorous study design, the Hannover work was also notable for its relative simplicity, within days of an MI, bone marrow cells were harvested from patients, quickly purified and concentrated, and then infused into each patient's infarct-related artery.
