OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate which regional myocardial parameters derived from speckle tracking echocardiography could demonstrate myocardial ischemic memory in a brief ischemia-reperfusion dog model. BACKGROUND Myocardial ischemic memory imaging, denoting the visualization of abnormalities provoked by ischemia and sustained even after(More)
The assessment of post-systolic shortening (PSS) by speckle tracking echocardiography allows myocardial ischemic memory imaging. Because the endocardial layer is more vulnerable to ischemia, the assessment of this layer might be useful for detecting ischemic memory. Serial echocardiographic data were acquired from nine dogs with 2 min of coronary occlusion(More)
Three-dimensional (3-D) speckle tracking echocardiography allows us to track a change in regional endocardial surface area. The change of regional area during a cardiac cycle should be useful for assessing left ventricular regional work. We investigated the feasibility of assessing regional work, calculated as the area within the wall tension-regional area(More)
