BACKGROUND Three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) can simultaneously assess left ventricular (LV) regional systolic motion and global LV mechanical dyssynchrony. METHODS We used 3DE to measure systolic dyssynchrony index (SDI) (standard deviation of the time from cardiac cycle onset to minimum systolic volume in 17 LV segments) in 100 patients and analyzed the association of SDI with other parameters for LV systolic function or dyssynchrony. Eighteen patients who underwent cardiac… CONTINUE READING
