Chronic myocardial ischemia and left ventricular function

Academic Article


  • Experimental studies show that brief episodes of myocardial ischemia result in changes in regional left ventricular systolic shortening that normalize after restoration of coronary blood flow. Since our original work in the characterization of left ventricular asynergy based on interventions done in the catheterization laboratory first appeared, other imaging techniques and renewed interest in the role of ischemia in left ventricular dysfunction have emerged.
