BACKGROUND Presurgical planning of mitral valve (MV) repair in patients with Barlow disease (BD) and fibroelastic deficiency (FED) is challenging because of the inability to assess accurately the complexity of MV prolapse. We hypothesized that the etiology of degenerative MV disease (DMVD) could be objectively and accurately ascertained using parameters of(More)
AIMS Two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2DSTE) allows measurements of left ventricular (LV) volumes and LV ejection fraction (LVEF) without manual tracings. Our goal was to determine the accuracy of 2DSTE against real-time 3D echocardiography (RT3DE) and against cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. METHODS AND RESULTS In Protocol 1,(More)
