Distinctive changes in end-diastolic wall thickness and postsystolic thickening in viable and infarcted myocardium.

OBJECTIVES In this study, we sought to compare the magnitude of changes in end-diastolic wall thickness (WT(ed)) and postsystolic thickening (PST) in a swine model of stunning and reperfused acute myocardial infarction, and to explore the relationship between WT(ed) and PST. METHODS Twenty-six pigs were subjected to left anterior descending coronary… CONTINUE READING
