Author information

  • 1Department of Medicine, University of Southern California School of Medicine.

Abstract

The hibernating myocardium refers to resting LV dysfunction due to reduced coronary blood flow that can be partially or completely reversed by myocardial revascularization and/or by reducing myocardial oxygen demand. It is different from the stunned myocardium. Methods for its detection are not yet perfect. Hibernating myocardium has been demonstrated to be present in several clinical subgroups of patients; however, currently its full clinical presence and impact are not adequately defined.
