Tissue-Doppler echocardiography (TDE) has been introduced to quantify stress echocardiography by means of assessing the left ventricular (LV) segmental myocardial velocities and excursion. The(More)
BACKGROUND Left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) is a routine clinical standard to assess cardiac function. Global longitudinal strain (GLS) and global circumferential strain (GCS) have(More)
BACKGROUND While speckle tracking echocardiography (2DSTE) can be used to study longitudinal, circumferential, and radial function, real time 3D echocardiography (3DE) generates dynamic time-volume(More)
BACKGROUND Although left bundle branch block (LBBB) alters the electrical activation of the heart, it is unknown how it might change the process of myocardial coordination (MC) and how it may affect(More)
AIMS We propose to assess the value of exercise-induced change in N-terminal-pro atrial natriuretic peptide (NT-proANP) and left atrial expansion index (LAEI) in predicting AFR after cardioversion(More)
