AIMS Strain rate imaging provides direct information on intrinsic myocardial function and may improve the diagnostic of diastolic dysfunction in heart failure with normal ejection fraction (HFNEF). We therefore correlated global strain with pressure-volume (PV) loop analysis and compared it with flow and tissue Doppler measurements. METHODS AND RESULTS Longitudinal two-dimensional strain rate and flow and tissue Doppler (TDI) indices were measured simultaneously and correlated with diastolic… CONTINUE READING
