Tissue Velocities and Myocardial Deformation in Asymptomatic and Symptomatic Aortic Stenosis.


BACKGROUND Assessment of myocardial longitudinal function has proved to be a sensitive marker of deteriorating myocardial function in aortic stenosis, demonstrated by both color Doppler tissue imaging and recently by two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography. The aim of this study was to compare velocity (color Doppler tissue imaging) and… (More)
