The apical hypokinesis persisted, and 1+ mitral regurgitation was noted.
In fact, a combination of these two mechanisms is likely to be at work, since a milder degree of reverse perfusion and mild hypokinesis at echocardiography were still evident at 3 months, despite patency of the stented vessel.
(17) They are most commonly found in the anterior and septal walls and are often with associated apical hypokinesis. These aneurysms may also serve as a nidus for complex ventricular tachycardias.
Comparison of 8 biomarkers for prediction of right ventricular hypokinesis 6 months after submassive pulmonary embolism.
in 1990, takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) became increasingly reported as a form of reversible focal myocardial hypokinesis following significant psychological or physical stress [1, 2].
Diaphragmatic and posterobasal hypokinesis was evident on contrast ventriculography.
Control echocardiography revealed an LVEF of 50% and left ventricular apical hypokinesis with minimal pericardial effusion.
Echocardiogram revealed mild diffuse global hypokinesis with an ejection fraction of 40-45%, impaired left ventricular relaxation, an estimated right ventricular systolic pressure of 50-55 mmHg consistent with moderate pulmonary hypertension, and mild to moderate tricuspid regurgitation.
Angiography demonstrated acute stent thrombosis, a 90% left anterior descending coronary artery stenosis, a 70% stenosis of the left circumflex coronary artery and associated severe inferior hypokinesis. He required insertion of an intra-aortic balloon pump following angiography and was referred for emergency coronary artery bypass surgery.
Transient hypokinesis, akinesis, or dyskinesis of the left ventricular mid segments with or without apical involvement; the regional wall motion abnormalities extending beyond a single epicardial vascular distribution; a stressful trigger often but not always present
The ultrasound cardiogram (UCG) showed an ejection fraction of 60% and mild hypokinesis in the apical portion of the left ventricle which had also normalized in a UCG repeated on the 8th day of admission.
An ECHO revealed a mildly reduced ejection fraction and left ventricular septal wall hypokinesis. Cardiac catheterization revealed no significant coronary artery disease.
