Dissociation between two-dimensional echocardiographic left ventricular wall motion and myocardial salvage in early experimental acute myocardial infarction in dogs.


This study was designed to evaluate whether the effects of coronary reperfusion with or without a pharmacologic agent could be detected in the early hours after infarction by 2-dimensional (2-D) echocardiography applied in a manner analogous to its clinical use. Proximal left anterior descending coronary occlusion was performed in 24 dogs, and the dogs were… (More)
