Notes:

Ischemia of the anterior myocardial segment is the result of occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. The anterior wall contractility is best revealed by apical two-chamber, short axis and long axis views. The long axis view actually defines the anterior-septum which is supplied by septal perforators from the left anterior descending artery. The motion pattern of those ischemic myocardial segments reveals either a hypo- or akinetic- motion compared to the other normally contractile segments.
