1 doctor agrees
In brief: Alive but...
Hibernating myocardium is heart muscle that is viable and alive but unable to contract normally.
It is generally related to inadequate blood supply to that area of the heart.

In brief: Ischemic myocardium
The definition of ischemic myocardium is poor heart function in the setting of poor cardiac circulation.
When the circulation is repaired, the heart function improves.
