In this case, CT was used to diagnose an infarcted splenule.
The timing of implementation of anti-remodeling strategies is important, as the prevention of topographic LV alterations by early treatment appears more effective, as opposed to their reversal in established chronic heart failure; for example, higher efficacy was demonstrated after early (7 days), compared to delayed (2 months) alginate implantation in infarcted rat hearts [3].
