Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) can identify cardiac dysfunction in adults. This study is aimed to improve early identification of initial left ventricular (LV) dysfunction secondary to ectopic atrial tachycardia (EAT) in children by TDI. A total of 70 children with EAT were included in the present study. Cardiac function was evaluated by conventional echocardiography, TDI, and plasma N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP). Doppler signals obtained from the mitral inflow and TDI of… CONTINUE READING
