Description: A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.

Also Known As: Ventricular Dysfunction, Left; Dysfunction, Left Ventricular; Dysfunctions, Left Ventricular; Left Ventricular Dysfunctions; Ventricular Dysfunctions, Left
