Assessment of two-component ventricular septum: functional differences in systolic deformation and rotation assessed by speckle tracking imaging.


BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to elucidate functional differences in the right and left components of the ventricular septum (Rt and Lt, respectively). METHODS Strain, strain rate, rotation, and rotation rate profile curves of Rt and Lt were obtained using speckle tracking echocardiography in 38 normal children and adolescents. RESULTS The… (More)
