Stunned myocardium is defined as postischemic dysfunction of viable myocardium. This phenomenon was initially described in animal models of brief ischemia followed by reperfusion, but is becoming increasingly recognized in clinical situations. One of these situations is ventricular dysfunction following coronary artery bypass surgery. Several clinical reports have demonstrated depressed ventricular function in the initial hours after coronary artery bypass surgery: this dysfunction is usually… CONTINUE READING
