Abstract

A patient with previous coronary stenting presented with stable angina and positive exercise treadmill test. Echocardiography with three-dimensional speckle-tracking demonstrated left ventricular rigid body rotation (near absence of left ventricular twist), whose characteristics changed dramatically during dipyridamole-induced vasodilatation.
