The changes of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were assessed after successful recanalization of chronic total occlusions (CTO) with or without previous myocardial infarction (MI) by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE). 32 patients with a successfully recanalyzed CTO were included in the present prospective study. The patients were divided into group 1 without previous MI and group 2 with previous MI in the territories of total occlusion vessel that was recanalized. In addition, there was a subgroup composed of 14 patients with collateral flow or retrograde flow in group 2. In all patients, LVEF was determined by RT3DE at baseline and after 6 weeks. In group 1, the evolution of LVEF increased significantly from 59.9 ± 7.2-67.5 ± 8.7% (P < 0.05). In group 2, the evolution of LVEF increased from 48.6 ± 6.1-50.1 ± 6.4%, however, it was without statistic significance (P > 0.05). The evolution of LVEF increased from 46.8 ± 7.1-53.0 ± 7.2% (P < 0.05) in the subgroup of group 2. Left ventricular function in patients with CTO can be feasibility and actually evaluated by RT3DE. The influence of recanalization of CTO on the improvement of left ventricular function was different between MI and non-MI patients. The left ventricular function did not improve in MI patients, but improved significantly in the patients having rich collateral circulation. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. Source

To investigate if the 12-lead resting electrocardiogram (ECG) is a predictor of left ventricular (LV) functional recovery after revascularization of chronic total coronary artery occlusions (CTO). Revascularization was performed in 58 CTO patients who had impaired regional wall motion. The 12-lead resting ECG was used to evaluate Q-wave, QT dispersion, and other parameters. Pre- and postoperative LV regional wall motions were evaluated by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT-3DE). In patients with non-Q-wave, the wall motion score index (WMSI) was dropped from 1.56 ± 0.31 to 1.12 ± 0.21 (P < 0.05), while there was no significant changes (1.73 ± 0.12 and 1.59 ± 0.23, P > 0.05) for WMSI in patients with Q-wave. Preoperative non-Q-wave at baseline was predicted recovery with 88 % sensitivity and 68 % specificity. Positive predictive value for recovery was 67 % in patients with non-Q-wave. The presence of Q-wave can predict non-recovery of the regional wall motion with 68 % sensitivity and 88 % specificity. For CTO patients treated by revascularization, recovery can be predicted reliably through the analysis of pathological Q-wave on the 12-lead resting ECG. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.
