[Pulse-wave Doppler Tissue Imaging in the assessment of regional left ventricular diastolic function in patients with coronary artery disease].

Abstract

AIM Myocardial ischemia impairs the diastolic left ventricular (LV) function earlier than the systolic function. We evaluated the value of pulse-wave Doppler Tissue Imaging (DTI) in the study of regional myocardial function of LV in patients with coronary artery disease. METHODS We performed a prospective study in 60 patients with coronary artery disease… (More)
