Our aim was to investigate the changes in the myocardium stiffness index for patients suffering from systemic hypertension, and to assess their left ventricular performance. We studied 263 hypertensive patients and 166 healthy subjects as a control group. By using conventional Doppler echocardiography, the following parameters were measured—Left ventricular(More)
BACKGROUND Mitral regurgitation (MR) is the most commonly encountered valve lesion in modern clinical practice. Severe mitral regurgitation may cause systolic dysfunction. Left ventricular ejection fraction may not be an accurate measurement of LV function in patients with mitral insufficiency. Myocardial performance index (MPI) is a simple non invasive(More)
INTRODUCTION: Hypoalbuminemia is a common laboratory finding in patients with systolic heart failure (HF), occurring in approximately one third of patients. (1) The possible mechanisms of hypoalbuminemia in patients with HF are malnutrition, chronic inflammation, infection, hemodilution, proteinuria, and other mechanisms. By reducing colloid osmotic(More)
