Myocardial performance index derived from preejection period: a novel and feasible parameter in evaluation of cardiac performance in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Using tissue Doppler echocardiography, we can measure preejection period (PEPa), defined as the interval measured from the onset of QRS to the onset of the systolic mitral annular velocity pattern, isovolumic relaxation time (IVRTa), defined as the interval measured from the end of systolic mitral annular velocity pattern to the onset of… (More)
