Abstract

Paradoxical septal motion (PSM) can cause confusion in the assessment of ventricular function with scintigraphy even in the absence of ventricular septal damage and ischemia. Fragmented QRS (fQRS) is associated with various cardiac disorders. In this study, we aimed to determine the correlation between paradoxical septal motion and fQRS after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).
