Abstract

In order to study events during isovolumic relaxation, left ventricular angiograms of 120 patients with ischemic heart disease were digitized frame by frame, and compared with those of 15 normal subjects. In patients with ischemic heart disease, abnormal inward movement of endocardium occurred in areas supplied by narrowed coronary arteries. When these involved the free wall, they were due to abnormal wall thickening rather than to inward movement of epicardium. Since the volume of the ventricle was constant, they were accompanied by compensatory outward movement of endocardium elsewhere, due to premature thinning. Identical abnormalities were demonstrated in 80 patients by M-mode echocardiography, and in individual patients, agreement with angiography was good. These abnormalities were aggravated by TNT administration, and were unaffected by isometric stress. In approximately half, they were associated with abnormalities of isovolumic contraction. They appear to represent the behavior of regions of the left ventricle with partial loss of function due to previous ischemic injury.
