Figure 1. Parasternal long axis view during systole. Ballooning of the apical segments of the left ventricle is apparent.
Figure 2.
Figure 2. Post-arrest coronary angiogram. There is right dominant circulation. The coronary arteries are diffusely constricted. The left main is angiographically normal. The left anterior descending artery has minimal disease (A). The left circumflex has an ostial 30% stenosis (B). The right coronary artery has minimal disease, and supplies the posterior descending artery (C).
