Version 2.77


Myocardial function is assessed based on wall motion of the ventricular segments. Wall motion includes wall thickening and endocardial motion. Abnormal segmental wall motion may result from a variety of disorders, including coronary artery stenoses, myocardial scarring, myocarditis, sarcoidosis, stress-induced (takotsubo) cardiomyopathy, and left bundle branch block or other conduction abnormalities. The American Society of Echocardiography recommends the following wall motion scoring system: 1) normal or hyperkinetic; 2) hypokinetic (reduced thickening); 3) akinetic (absent or negligible thickening, e.g., scar); and 4) dyskinetic (systolic thinning or stretching, e.g., aneurysm).
