BACKGROUND Two-dimensional speckle tracking imaging allows noninvasive measurement of left ventricular (LV) strain, rotation, and displacement. We investigated whether LV twist would be depressed in anterior wall myocardial infarction (MI) as a result of reduced apical rotation. METHODS Basal and apical LV short-axis images were acquired in 30 patients with anterior wall MI. Using commercially available 2-dimensional strain software, time domain speckle tracking was performed, and regional LV… CONTINUE READING
