Left ventricular (LV) twist represents a phenomenon that links systolic contraction with diastolic relaxation and plays a major role in cardiac physiology; thus, the study of twist mechanics is of particular interest in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC). Three-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (3D-STE) has the potential to overcome the(More)
BACKGROUND Excessive weight and obesity (EwO) are independent factors in the development of heart failure; they lead to a state of myocardiopathy via inflammatory and hormonal mechanisms. If excessively accumulated, epicardial fat favors a proinflammatory state. Ventricular asynchrony is a marker of heart failure progression and has been poorly studied in(More)
BACKGROUND Severe aortic stenosis (AS), leads to pathological left ventricular remodeling that may worsen with concomitant overweight and obesity (OW/O). METHODS We aimed to prospectively analyze the impact of OW/O on ventricular remodeling in severe AS, by evaluating the percentage of intraendomyocardial fibrosis (PIEF) and the percentage of infiltrating(More)
