Echocardiography has established appropriate areas in the evaluation of patients with known or suspected ischaemic heart disease. This chapter highlights the main risk stratifications for assessment of acute myocardial infarction. It illustrates the main complications of acute myocardial infarction (e.g. wall rupture, ventricular aneurysm, ventricular pseudoaneurysm, thrombus, pericardial effusion, mitral regurgitation) with details of incidence, timing, echocardiographic findings and implications. This chapter also details poor prognosis risk factors found in echocardiographic examination of patients with chronic ischaemic heart disease.
