Left ventricular shape and mass impact torsional dynamics in asymptomatic patients with chronic aortic regurgitation and normal left ventricular ejection fraction

Abstract

Chronic aortic regurgitation (AR) is associated with a unique pattern of left ventricular (LV) volume and pressure overload, leading to LV remodelling. LV torsional motion, a key component of LV performance, can be altered in this setting. We aimed to assess the impact of LV remodelling on LV torsional dynamics parameters using speckle-tracking… (More)
