Strain value in the assessment of left ventricular function and prediction of heart failure markers in aortic regurgitation.


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… (More)
