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)
