Echocardiography assessment of the right ventricle in acute coronary syndrome

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

When echocardiographers evaluate patients with cardiac decompensation following acute myocardial infarction, the abnormalities sought are typically left-sided problems such as profound left ventricular systolic dysfunction and/or mechanical complications of infarction. However, right ventricular infarction, which may also present as cardiogenic shock, is often overlooked. Although echocardiography is ideally suited to make this diagnosis, echocardiographic imaging protocols frequently include only limited images of the right ventricle and rarely include regional or quantitative assessment of function. As a consequence, the diagnosis of myocardial infarction may be missed.
