The etiology of abnormal interventricular septal motion occurring after open-heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass has not been clarified. Intraoperative ischemic septal injury has been proposed as one explanation for this finding. To examine this possibility, resting septal perfusion and viability were studied using rest and redistribution thallium… CONTINUE READING
