AIMS Left ventricular (LV) asynchrony assessment is mostly based on delays between regional myocardial velocity peaks. Regional function is barely considered. We propose apical transverse motion (ATM) as a new parameter integrating both temporal and functional information, which was tested in different conduction delays. METHODS AND RESULTS We examined 67 patients, 11 patients with post-infarct ischaemic left bundle branch blocks (iLBBB) and 25 patients with non-ischaemic left bundle branch… CONTINUE READING
