Tissue Doppler imaging of the tricuspid annulus and myocardial performance index in the evaluation of right ventricular involvement in the acute and late phase of a first inferior myocardial infarction.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Ischemic involvement of the right ventricle (RV) can complicate the early course of inferior ST elevation myocardial infarction (IMI) and has significant management implications but its diagnosis is difficult. This study assessed RV involvement in the acute and late phase of IMI by pulse-wave tissue Doppler (PW-TDI) and RV myocardial performance… (More)
