Ventricular septal wall motion, assessed by M-mode echocardiography, was analyzed, retrospectively, in 324 patients after open heart surgery (214 patients with valvular replacement, 110 patients with aorto-coronary bypass surgery); the mean follow-up was 14 months (1 month to 5 years). In the early (less than 1 month) postoperative period, an anterior systolic (paradoxical) motion of septum (PVSM) was observed in 66% of the patients with valvular surgery, and in 76% of those with coronary… CONTINUE READING
