Reduced and delayed untwisting of the left ventricle in patients with hypertension and left ventricular hypertrophy: a study using two-dimensional speckle tracking imaging We read with interest the study by Takeuchi et al. 1 which elegantly lends weight to the critical role of untwisting in normal and abnormal diastolic function. 2 However, we would like to raise two important methodo-logical issues in the use of speckle tracking imaging (STI) to assess torsion: (1) The need for further… CONTINUE READING
