Özet

Background Assessment of left ventricular (LV) thrombosis risk after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is important because of potential embolic sequelae that are reduced by oral anticoagulant agents. The goal of this study was to investigate whether early assessment of LV systolic and diastolic performance with pulsed wave tissue Doppler ultrasound scanning (PWTD) predicts LV thrombosis after AMI.
