Salvage of hibernating myocardium after coronary angioplasty

Abstract

Twelve patients with reversible chronic ischemic myocardial dysfunction (hibernating myocardium) identified by a severe left ventricular wall-motion abnormality at rest and at least one of three other findings - persistent angina pectoris, postextrasystolic ventricular contraction potentiation, and thallium-201 uptake in the asynergic zone - were chosen to undergo percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty. Following the procedure, the patients had significantly improved ejection fractions and regional wall motion without an increase in left ventricular end-diastolic pressure.
