To characterize the relation between the transmural extent of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and associated regional contractility after recovery from ischemia, 11 mongrel dogs underwent occlusion of the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery and were evaluated 2 weeks after infarction. Occlusion was permanent in 5 dogs, and reperfusion was allowed after 2 hours of occlusion in 6 dogs. All dogs had computer-assisted quantitative wall-thickening analysis by 2-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
