Serial speckle tracking and successful post-STEMI percutaneous coronary intervention: incremental value versus visual wall motion analysis.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  20815095     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The present clinical case shows that assessment of longitudinal strain in the coronary care unit using speckle tracking echocardiography can help to quantify myocardial damage in the context of acute coronary syndromes and detect changes otherwise not visible with semi-quantitative evaluation of wall motion.
