Background:  ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is frequently associated with reciprocal ST-segment depression in contralateral ECG leads. However, the relationship of resolution of ST-segment depression (STD-R) with myocardial and microvascular damage is unknown and the potential prognostic value incompletely understood. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the STD-R and markers of myocardial injury visualized by cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging as well as to determine the prognostic impact of STD-R in patients with acute reperfused STEMI. Methods:  We enrolled 661 STEMI patients in this multicenter CMR study. STD-R, defined as either complete (≥ 50 %) or incomplete (
