The estimated ejection fraction was 10% with akinesis of the anterior and inferior walls, sparing of the base and apex, and ballooning of the mid ventricle (Figure 3).
4 cm, ejection fraction--25%, normal basal segments, apical hypokinesis, apicolateral heavy hypokinesis, 2/3 distal septum akinesis, E/A ratio 2:1, deceleration time--150 msn, isovolumetric relaxation time - 80 msn, 1(+) mitral regurgitation, and normal valve structures were determined.
3,7) The ventriculogram demonstrates ventricular asynergy with hypokinesis or akinesis from the midportion of the ventricle to the apex, and hyperkinesis of the base.
Due to the findings of thinning and akinesis of the lateral wall, as well as the angiographic nature of the two CTOs, percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of the CTO of the RCA was planned, and the patient was transferred to our tertiary care center.
Akinesis of the apical chamber is attributed to ischemia from increased wall stress and work due to high systolic and diastolic pressures combined with massive hypertrophy.
Abnormalities of left ventricular wall motion (hypokinesis, akinesis, and/or dyskinesis) were documented by ECHO in 97 (80.
An echocardiogram showed moderately decreased left ventricular systolic function with an ejection fraction of 35% to 39% and akinesis of the septal wall and apical region.
A transthoracic echocardiogram showed a mildly dilated LV, moderate to severe segmental systolic dysfunction, with inferior wall akinesis and hypokinesis of the septum, apex and distal anterior wall.
The echo showed segmental wall motion abnormalities consisting of apical akinesis, mild anterior and anteroseptal hypokinesis, and ejection fraction of 45 to 50%.
