This report illustrates a magnetic resonance image of aborted myocardial infarction after primary angioplasty. Myocardial oedema in the absence of late enhancement seems to be the magnetic resonance marker of the myocardium at risk of infarction that has been reperfused within 30 minutes and aborted in the clinic.
