  • Medicine
  • The International Journal of Cardiovascular…
  • 2014 (First Publication: 1 October 2014)
  • We tested the hypothesis that the addition of right atrial (RA) remodeling to right ventricular (RV) function enhances the capability of the latter to predict long-term outcome for pulmonaryContinue Reading

  • Medicine
  • Echocardiography
  • 2016 (First Publication: 1 February 2016)
  • BACKGROUND Current guidelines recommend the routine use of tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) as a simple method for estimating right ventricular (RV) function. However, whenContinue Reading
