How to diagnose diastolic heart failure: a consensus statement on the diagnosis of heart failure with normal left ventricular ejection fraction by the Heart Failure and Echocardiography Associations
Diastolic heart failure (DHF) currently accounts for more than 50% of all heart failure patients. DHF is also referred to as heart failure with normal left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (HFNEF)Expand

Regional strain and strain rate measurements by cardiac ultrasound: principles, implementation and limitations.
The non-invasive quantification of regional myocardial function is an important goal in clinical cardiology. Myocardial thickening/thinning indices is one method of attempting to define regionalExpand

Regional nonuniformity of normal adult human left ventricle.
Regional nonuniformity is a feature of both diseased and normal left ventricles (LV). With the use of magnetic resonance (MR) myocardial tagging, we performed three-dimensional strain analysis on 87Expand

Impact of myocardial haemorrhage on left ventricular function and remodelling in patients with reperfused acute myocardial infarction.
AIMS Myocardial haemorrhage is a common complication following reperfusion of ST-segment-elevation acute myocardial infarction (MI). Although its presence is clearly related to infarct size, atExpand

Remodeling of T-Tubules and Reduced Synchrony of Ca2+ Release in Myocytes From Chronically Ischemic Myocardium
In ventricular cardiac myocytes, T-tubule density is an important determinant of the synchrony of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+ release and could be involved in the reduced SR Ca2+ release inExpand

Dissociation Between Left Ventricular Untwisting and Filling: Accentuation by Catecholamines
Background Efficient early diastolic filling is essential for normal cardiac function. Diastolic suction, as evidenced by a decreasing left ventricular pressure during early filling, could resultExpand

Triple control of relaxation: implications in cardiac disease.
EARLY DETECTION of impaired relaxation has been emphasized recently for the evaluation of global and regional ventricular function in patients with heart disease. Although early relaxationExpand

Determinants and impact of microvascular obstruction in successfully reperfused ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Assessment by magnetic resonance imaging
Microvascular obstruction (MVO) is an important and independent determinant of post-infarct remodeling. Fifty-two patients with a successfully reperfused ST-segment elevation acute myocardialExpand
