AIMS To assess the capacity of global longitudinal strain (GLS) in patients with aortic stenosis (AS) to (i) detect the subclinical left ventricular (LV) dysfunction [LV ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥50% patients]; (ii) predict all-cause mortality and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) (all patients), and (iii) provide incremental prognostic information over current risk markers. METHODS AND RESULTS Patients with AS (n = 146) and age-matched controls (n = 12) underwent baseline echocardiography… CONTINUE READING
