OBJECTIVE To compare the values of three different forms of tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) processing in predicting left ventricular (LV) reverse remodelling-namely, tissue velocity, displacement and strain mapping. DESIGN Standard echocardiography with TDI was performed before and 3 months after cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT). SETTING University teaching hospital. PATIENTS 55 patients with heart failure who received CRT and were followed up for at least 3 months were recruited… CONTINUE READING
