Abstract

The left ventricular (LV) twist is defined as the wringing motion of the heart around its longaxis in systole caused by oppositely directed counterclockwise apical and clockwise basal rotations resulted from the movement of two orthogonally oriented muscular bands. In some clinical circumstances, rotation at both basal and apical levels of the LV occurred in the same clockwise or counterclockwise direction during systole resulting the near absence of LV twist as called left ventricular "rigid body rotation" (LVRBR). Hereby we present that LV-RBR normalization of LV rotational mechanics could be demonstrated at maximum hyperaemia during dipyridamole-induced stress by three-dimensional (3D) speckle tracking echocardiography in a patient with stable angina.
