The evaluation of diastolic function using the diastolic wall strain (DWS) before and after radical surgery for congenital diaphragmatic hernia


The measurement of diastolic wall strain (DWS), a new method of evaluating cardiac diastolic function, was employed to evaluate ventricular diastolic function in patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Eighteen neonates with a CDH who were born and treated in our hospital between September 2009 and January 2013 were studied. The left… (More)
