BACKGROUND Premature ventricular contractions (PVC), capillary leakage, and petechial hemorrhage can occur during myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE). The effects occur as a result of the interaction of contrast agent microbubbles and the ultrasound, but the detailed etiology of the effects is not yet clear. This study tested the hypothesis that the capillary leakage results from a physiological response to injury, which might be protracted and modulated by vasoactive drugs. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
