Abstract

It is well established that symptomatic ischemia is associated with abnormalities of systolic and diastolic left ventricular (LV) function (1, 2). The derangements of systolic function occur in the form of hypokinesia of the myocardial area supplied by the stenotic coronary artery. Diastolic abnormalities produced by ischemia encompass delayed and incomplete LV relaxation, as well as alterations of chamber stiffness associated with a massive increase in LV end-diastolic pressure.
