The aim of this study was to: (1) compare the usefulness, in clinical practice, of different echocardiographic methods of left ventricular (LV) function determination in patients with a recent thrombolytic-treated acute myocardial infarction (AMI); (2) compare these measurements with the reference method radionuclide imaging; and (3) evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
