Abstract: Left ventricular geometry is distorted after anterior infarction caused by occlusion of a wrap around left anterior descending artery. Loss of the apex creates a spherical left ventricular (LV) chamber, whose rebuilding requires reconstruction techniques that exclude the non-functional inferior wall. The described technique of tailoring the apex defines a way to create an oblique elliptical rim for subsequent patch placement to complete the restoration procedure. This method of ventricular rebuilding differs from methods that follow the inferior wall scar, which result in a restoration procedure that leaves a spherical or box-like apical region.

    Background: We previously reported a case of cerebral infarction complicated by myocardial infarction. The pathogenesis of both infarctions was thought to be vasospasm; thus, we named this condition 'idiopathic carotid and coronary vasospasm'. Various medical treatments for the prevention of...

    Myocardial infarction leads to changes in the geometry (remodeling) of the left ventricle (LV) of the heart. The degree and type of remodeling provides important diagnostic information for the therapeutic management of ischemic heart disease. In this paper, we present a novel analysis framework...

    Non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) in the late post myocardial infarction (MI) period (7-21 days) has been reported to be a predictor of sudden death. We suspected that patients with 3 beat VT on Holter monitoring in the late infarction period would demonstrate electrical instability at...
