Cardiac injury, including left ventricular dysfunction, frequently occurs in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Patterns of left ventricular dysfunction often do not follow coronary artery distributions, and may correlate with myocardial sympathetic innervation. Left ventricular dysfunction of the anterior and anteroseptal walls that spares the apex is unusual for patients with myocardial infarction and may represent a neurally mediated pattern of injury. We performed serial… CONTINUE READING
