Utility of comprehensive assessment of strain dyssynchrony index by speckle tracking imaging for predicting response to cardiac resynchronization therapy.
The strain delay index is reportedly a marker of dyssynchrony and residual myocardial contractility. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that a relatively simple version of the strainExpand

N822K- or V560G-mutated KIT activation preferentially occurs in lipid rafts of the Golgi apparatus in leukemia cells
BackgroundKIT tyrosine kinase is expressed in mast cells, interstitial cells of Cajal, and hematopoietic cells. Permanently active KIT mutations lead these host cells to tumorigenesis, and to suchExpand

Abstract 15481: Regional Myocardial Systolic Function Using Transmural Myocardial Strain Profile Predicts Postoperative Left Ventricular Systolic Dysfunction in Chronic Aortic Regurgitation
Background: We have reported that preoperative peak systolic left ventricular (LV) strain rate predicts postoperative LV systolic dysfunction in chronic aortic regurgitation (AR). However, transmur...
