The Prognostic Implications of Two-Dimensional Speckle Tracking Echocardiography in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Current and Future Perspectives.

Two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography represents a novel, simple, and reproducible technique for the estimation of left ventricular myocardial deformation (strain) and the evaluation of left ventricular twist mechanics. During the last few years, its clinical and prognostic implications in cardiomyopathies and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM… CONTINUE READING
