OBJECTIVE Speckle tracking, when combined with 3-dimensional (3D) left ventricular ejection fraction, might prove to be a more sensitive marker for postoperative ventricular dysfunction. This study investigated early outcomes in a cohort of patients with left ventricular dysfunction undergoing cardiac surgery. DESIGN Prospective, blinded, observational study. SETTING University hospital; single institution. PARTICIPANTS The study comprised 73 adult patients with left ventricular ejection… CONTINUE READING
