BACKGROUND Impairment of global diastolic function is considered to be the mechanism of congestive heart failure in individuals with preserved systolic left ventricular (LV) function. Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is known to be a risk factor for congestive heart failure with preserved systolic function, and this process may begin as a regional process. We investigated whether regional LV diastolic function measured by magnetic resonance tagging is altered in asymptomatic participants of… CONTINUE READING
