AIMS To assess the accuracy of tissue Doppler imaging-derived myocardial positive pre-ejection velocity (+Vic) in detecting myocardial viability defined by dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE), fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET), and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and in predicting recovery of left ventricular (LV) function after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in patients with chronic ischaemic LV dysfunction.
