Myocardial deformation in acute myocarditis with normal left ventricular wall motion--a cardiac magnetic resonance and 2-dimensional strain echocardiographic study.


BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to assess longitudinal (L), circumferential (C) and radial (R) strain (S) of the left ventricle (LV) in patients with acute myocarditis and preserved LV wall motion. METHODS AND RESULTS Of the 26 male patients that were enrolled, 13 patients (26+/-8 years) suffered from acute myocarditis and 13 (25+/-2 years) were… (More)
