The regional contribution for the global ventricular functional performance is complex and heterogeneous, the myocardial texture could reflect this particular aspect, during the phases of myocardial contraction and relaxation. The objective of our clinical study was to evaluate the relationship between the segmental myocardial velocity pattern by Doppler… CONTINUE READING
