Incidence of left-ventricular thrombosis after acute transmural myocardial infarction. Serial evaluation by two-dimensional echocardiography.
To study the incidence of left-ventricular thrombosis after transmural myocardial infarction, we performed serial two-dimensional echocardiography in 70 consecutive patients. Thirty-five patients hadExpand

Stress cardiomyopathy: clinical and ventriculographic characteristics in 107 North American subjects.
BACKGROUND Stress cardiomyopathy (SCM) is a newly described reversible cardiomyopathy of largely unclear etiology. We studied SCM in a large cohort to gain further insights. METHODS WeExpand

Embolic potential of left ventricular thrombi detected by two-dimensional echocardiography.
We sought to determine whether an association existed between the echocardiographic appearance of left ventricular thrombi and systemic embolization. We reviewed the clinical and echocardiographicExpand

Alcohol-induced congestive cardiomyopathy: an animal model.
In an effort to determine the effect of ethanol ingestion on myocardial function in the domestic turkey, a group of Nicholas birds were fed 5% ethanol (25% of calories) for the first 56 days of lifeExpand

Regional Stasis of Blood in the Dysfunctional Left Ventricle: Echocardiographic Detection and Differentiation from Early Thrombosis
In two-dimensional echocardiographic studies of left ventricular thrombus in patients, an unusual pattern of dynamic left ventricular intracavitary echoes was identified in some hearts with severeExpand

Regional function and perfusion at the lateral border of ischemic myocardium.
To determine whether function is depressed in areas of myocardium adjacent to an area of myocardial ischemia, 16 open-chest dogs were studied with both two-dimensional echocardiography and ultrasonicExpand

Observations on detecting left ventricular thrombus with two dimensional echocardiography: emphasis on avoidance of false positive diagnoses.
Observations made in detecting left ventricular thrombus with two dimensional echocardiography in 25 patients are reviewed. In 20 patients thrombus was documented on angiography, surgery postmortemExpand

Determinants of hospital charges for coronary artery bypass surgery: the economic consequences of postoperative complications.
This is a prospective study of 500 consecutive patients having coronary artery bypass surgery; mean hospital charge from time of surgery to discharge was +11,900 +/- 12,700. Multiple regressionExpand

Intravenous versus intracoronary streptokinase therapy for acute myocardial infarction in community hospitals.
A consecutive series of 184 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) received thrombolytic therapy. The first 63 were treated in the catheterization laboratory with intracoronary streptokinaseExpand
