Although many studies have shown that ventricular wall dynamics are a useful estimate of global and regional ventricular function, the precise relations that exist during contraction among myocardial fiber shortening, wall dynamics, and left ventricular cavity changes have not been previously established. To study the relation among some geometric variables… CONTINUE READING
