AIMS Information is limited regarding the functional correlates of intramural scar burden in myopathic hearts. We aimed to explore the use of speckle tracking echocardiography selectively at three intramural locations, to investigate the variance in cardiac strains and their relationship to contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging-derived scar distribution and global left ventricular systolic function. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty-nine patients with evidence of myocardial fibrosis on… CONTINUE READING
