Supplementary Material

Movie I. Echocardiogram (apical 4-chamber view) showing dilated left ventricle with moderate systolic dysfunction (left ventricular ejection fraction 40%), with segmental wall motion abnormalities: hypokinetic mid-anterior wall with akinetic interventricular septum, basal inferolateral and anterior walls. The apical segment contracts normally.

Movie II. Left ventricular angiogram in the RAO projection, showing severe hypokinesis of the basal segments of the anterior and inferior walls, with normal contractile function of the more distal segments and apex.

Movie III. Repeat echocardiogram (apical 4-chamber view) showing normal left ventricular cavity size with very mild hypokinesis of the basal inferior and inferoseptal wall with a low normal systolic function and mild degree of diastolic dysfunction.
