Myocardial injury and left ventricular performance after subarachnoid hemorrhage
Ventricular Dysfunction, Left
Ventricular Function, Left
Myocardial enzyme release and echocardiographic wall motion abnormalities are associated with impaired left ventricular performance after subarachnoid hemorrhage. In severely affected patients, reduction of cardiac output from normally elevated levels may increase the risk of cerebral ischemia related to vasospasm.
