Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Eine Echokardiografie wird im Rahmen der Arbeitsdiagnose "akutes Koronarsyndrom" empfohlen, wenn bei einem akuten Brustschmerz das EKG oder die Biomarker noch keine sichere Diagnose einer Myokardischämie zulassen oder Differentialdiagnosen berücksichtigt werden müssen. Der frühe und zuverlässige Nachweis von Wandbewegungsstörungen oder Perfusionsstörungen mittels Kontrastechokardiografie besonders bei reduziertem Schallfenster ist hilfreich bei der Sicherung der Diagnose und der Festlegung des weiteren Behandlungspfades sowie der Erkennung von Komplikationen wie Ventrikelthromben und hat somit eine prognostische Bedeutung für den folgenden Krankheitsverlauf.
