Clinical and prognostic comparison between left ventricular transient dyskinesia and a first non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome.

Coron. Artery Dis.. 2008 Nov;19(7):449-53, PMID: 18923239

Apical ballooning shares features with acute coronary syndromes. Recently, atypical forms have been reported without apical involvement. Usually, the prognostic reports have compared them with ST-segment elevation infarction. Left ventricular transient dyskinesias (LVTD), however, frequently occur without ST-segment elevation and when present, these patients always have open arteries. Our aim was to assess the baseline features, clinical presentation, natural history and compare long-term prognosis in an LVTD-cohort with a first non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEMI) group.
