BACKGROUND This study aimed to examine the relationship between biochemical heart failure markers and conventional left ventricular (LV) measurements and strain assessed by speckle-tracking echocardiography in chronic aortic regurgitation (AR) patients. METHODS AND RESULTS LV strain, rotation assessed by speckle-tracking echocardiography, LV measurements, mitral annular plane excursion measured by M-mode, and systolic annular plane velocity measured by tissue Doppler echocardiography were… CONTINUE READING
