OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to clarify the influence of the ASD closure by occluder device on right ventricular acute and long-term changes in longitudinal systolic strains, by evaluating right ventricular wall deformation in children using speckle tracking echocardiography (STE). METHODS AND MATERIALS We enrolled 30 children with ASDs and 40… CONTINUE READING
