Myocardial dyssynergy does not necessarily indicate myocardial necrosis in patients with coronary artery disease. The differentiation between viable and non-viable tissue is of great clinical importance in order to make the most appropriate clinical decision in the individual patient. Several techniques are used to assess myocardial viability. Nuclear medicine gives reliable information on regional perfusion, metabolism and cell membrane integrity, while echocardiography provides real time… CONTINUE READING
