Assessment of ischemic regional myocardial dysfunction and its reversibility.


BY ITS very nature, significant disease of the coronary arteries results in regional ischemia or infarction, with sparing of other areas of the heart. Therefore, it is intuitively reasonable that assessment of the consequences of ischemic events on cardiac contraction would be best reflected in regional myocardial performance. On the other hand, if a… (More)
