Abstract

Three-dimensional ultrasound speckle tracking imaging was used to evaluate the effects of recombinant human brain natriuretic peptide (rhBNP) in acute anterior and extensive anterior myocardial infarction. Ninety patients with acute anterior or extensive myocardial infarction were randomly divided into 3 groups: Group A [emergency percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)], Group B (emergency PCI + rhBNP early treatment), and Group C (emergency PCI + late rhBNP treatment). Within 6 h of admission and at 1 week and 3 and 6 months after PCI, patients underwent routine transthoracic echocardiography and real-time three-dimensional echocardiography. At 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months, ejection fraction values in groups B and C were significantly greater than those in group A (P 0.05). However, at 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months, long-axis, radial, circumferential and area variables in groups B and C were significantly less than those in group A (P
