Regional wall motion abnormality at the lateral wall disturbs correlations between tissue Doppler E/e′ ratios and left ventricular diastolic performance parameters measured by invasive methods

Abstract

BACKGROUND The impact of regional wall motion abnormality (RWMA) on the accuracy of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) diagnosis using the E/e' ratio, which is a non-invasive parameter of left ventricular diastolic performance, is unknown. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the impact of RWMA of the lateral wall (RWMAlat) on the… (More)
