In the decades that passed since then, use of echocardiographic estimation of LVEF has become an everyday part of our lives in cardiology, particularly for establishing diagnosis and monitoring long-term care of patients with heart failure (HF). In such patients, LVEF estimation is embedded in clinical practice… CONTINUE READING
