Circumferential and longitudinal strain in 3 myocardial layers in normal subjects and in patients with regional left ventricular dysfunction.
BACKGROUND The left ventricle is not homogenous and is composed of 3 myocardial layers. Until recently, magnetic resonance imaging has been the only noninvasive technique for detailed evaluation ofExpand

The clinical significance of ventricular arrhythmias during an exercise test in non-competitive and competitive athletes.
BACKGROUND Sudden death in athletes can occur during sport activities and is presumably related to ventricular arrhythmias. There are no guidelines concerning athletes who develop ventricularExpand

Reproducibility of microvolt T-wave alternans in patients with coronary artery disease.
BACKGROUND Microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) measures subtle beat-to-beat fluctuations in the T-wave amplitude. It was found to be associated with cardiac electrical instability in patients withExpand

[Implant augmentation in pelvic surgery. Options and technique].
BACKGROUND Osteoporotic fractures of the pelvis are an increasing problem in trauma surgery. Sufficient implant anchorage is reduced due to the poor bone stock; however, early mobilization isExpand

Real-time quantitative automatic assessment of left ventricular ejection fraction and regional wall motion by speckle imaging.
BACKGROUND Echocardiographic assessment of left ventricular function includes calculation of ejection fraction and regional wall motion analysis. Recently, speckle imaging was introduced forExpand
