Identifying patients with advanced left atrial (LA) remodeling before catheter ablation (CA) of atrial fibrillation (AF) is of crucial importance. Recently, we proposed a simple noninvasive method to evaluate LA activation and asynchrony using pulsed-wave tissue Doppler imaging (PW-TDI) (1). In that study, we investigated the effects of LA asynchrony on the presence of LA scar and AF recurrences after CA.. Patients with AF referred for CA were prospectively investigated using PW-TDI. Before CA, the intervals from the onset of P-wave to A′ (P-A′) were measured at the septal, lateral, anterior, and inferior mitral annulus. In the LA activation sequence, the difference between the longest and the shortest P-A′ (DLS), as well as the SD of all 4 values (SD4), were calculated to measure LA asynchrony as previously described (1). Pulmonary vein isolation was successfully performed in all patients. Point-by-point electroanatomical voltage maps of the LA in sinus rhythm were created and areas with ...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged exercise in human athletes is associated with transient impairment of left ventricular (LV) function, known as cardiac fatigue. Cardiac effects of prolonged exercise in horses remain unknown. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effects of prolonged exercise on LV systolic and diastolic function in horses. ANIMALS: Twenty-six horses competing in 120-160 km endurance rides. METHODS: Cross-sectional field study. Echocardiography was performed before and after rides, and the following morning, and included two-dimensional echocardiography, anatomical M-mode, pulsed-wave tissue Doppler imaging, and two-dimensional speckle tracking. Correlation between echocardiographic variables and cardiac troponin I was evaluated. RESULTS: Early diastolic myocardial velocities decreased significantly in longitudinal (baseline: -17.4 ± 2.4cm/s; end of ride: -15.8 ± 3.2cm/s (P = .013); morning after: -15.4 ± 3.0cm/s (P = .0033)) and radial directions (-32.8 ± 3.4cm/s; -28.1 ± 5.8cm/s (P , .001); ...

The aim of this study was to investigate early changes in left ventricular longitudinal systolic function in patients with hypertension (HTN) with and without concomitant diastolic dysfunction (DD) and the clinical implications of these findings. We enrolled 299 patients with HTN and 297 age-matched patients with HTN and DD and compared both groups with an age-matched control group consisting of 100 healthy subjects. The long axis systolic function was investigated by determining the average peak systolic velocity of the septal and lateral mitral sites (Smavg) using spectral pulsed wave tissue Doppler imaging (TDI). We found a strong negative trend toward the reduction of velocity, which is dependent on the grade of HTN, on the magnitude of DD, and also on the gender and age of the subjects (r=−0.891/-0.580; p|0.0001). The data showed that the beginning and evolution of HTN are related to a slight but significant reduction in the long axis systolic function (10.2-10.0 cm/s; p|0.0001), and DD worsens

Background: Isolated LV non-compaction (ILVNC) is a poorly defined condition with an uncertain outcome. Whilst the distribution of non-compaction has been previously described, the relationship of these structural changes with regional functional derangement is unclear.. Methods: We prospectively investigated patients (pts) by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI; Siemens 1.5T Avanto) and echocardiography (Philips iE33). All pts had a ratio of non-compacted myocardium to compacted myocardium ≥ 2:1 at end-systole by echo and at end-diastole by MRI. The number and distribution of non-compacted segments was based on the 17 segment model. MRI was performed using turbo spin echo, truFISP cine, and delayed enhancement breath hold sequences in standard planes. Transthoracic echo (TTE) was performed in apical long axis and parasternal short axis views. Pulse wave tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) was performed at the mitral valve annulus from an apical 4 chamber view. Colour TDI was performed in an apical 4 ...
OBJECTIVE: To quantify regional left ventricular (LV) function and contractile reserve in Q wave and non-Q wave regions in patients with previous myocardial infarction. DESIGN: An observational study. SETTING: Tertiary care centre. PATIENTS: 81 patients with previous myocardial infarction and depressed LV function. INTERVENTIONS: All patients underwent surface ECG at rest and pulsed wave tissue Doppler imaging at rest and during low dose dobutamine infusion. The left ventricle was divided into four major regions (anterior, inferoposterior, septal, and lateral). Severely hypokinetic, akinetic, and dyskinetic regions on two dimensional echocardiography at rest were considered dysfunctional. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Regional myocardial systolic velocity (Vs) at rest and the change in Vs during low dose dobutamine infusion (DeltaVs) in dysfunctional regions with and without Q waves on surface ECG. RESULTS: 220 (69%) regions were dysfunctional; 60 of these regions corresponded to Q waves and 160 were ...

Introduction: Right and/or left ventricular heart failure are not uncommon in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, it is unknown if subclinical cardiac dysfunction exists before the occurrence of pulmonary hypertension.. Hypothesis: Tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) helps to identify the early impairment of ventricular function in COPD.. Methods: 67 stable COPD patients (no acute exacerbation in the past 3 months) without pulmonary hypertension [pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) ,35mmHg by Doppler echocardiography] and history of clinical heart failure were compared with 50 normal controls. Using color tissue Doppler imaging (TDI), tricuspid annular motion displacement, peak systolic (Sm) and peak early diastolic (Em) velocity in basal right ventricular (RV) segment as well as the mean values of 6 basal left ventricular (LV) segments were measured.. Results: There was no difference in PASP (19.7±9.7 vs. 18.0±9.5mmHg) and RV ejection fraction (59.1±8.0 vs. ...
Aims The aims of the study were to explore the effects of long-term endurance exercise on atrial and ventricular size and function in adolescents and to examine whether these changes are related to maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). Methods and results Twenty-seven long-term endurance-trained adolescents aged 13-19 years were individually matched by age and gender with 27 controls. All participants, 22 girls and 32 boys, underwent an echocardiographic examination at rest, including standard and colour tissue Doppler investigation. VO2max was assessed during treadmill exercise. All heart dimensions indexed for body size were larger in the physically active group compared with controls: left ventricular end-diastolic volume 60 vs. 50 mL/m(2) (P amp;lt; 0.001), left atrial volume 27 vs. 19 mL/m(2) (P amp;lt; 0.001), and right ventricular (RV) and right atrial area 15 vs. 13 and 9 vs. 7 cm(2)/m(2), respectively (P amp;lt; 0.001 for both). There were strong associations between the size of the cardiac ...
CMR is considered the reference standard for the assessment of ventricular volumes and EF, as the endocardial contours can be drawn with confidence and the volumes and EF calculated without geometric assumptions. Employing PC imaging, aortic SVs are calculated using velocities from the entire orifice (without needing to assume constant transorifice flow profile as in echocardiography with pulsed-wave Doppler). Furthermore, the RVol and RF are calculated without any hemodynamic or shape assumptions and are not affected by the direction of the MR jet (except for the direct method) or the orifice geometry. Finally, the comparable spatial resolution, but superior signal- and contrast-noise resolution, of CMR make these measurements reproducible and amenable to serial assessments.. Despite the enthusiasm for using CMR for MR quantification, there are limited data on accuracy; several of the CMR studies shown in Table 4 were not specifically performed for the validation of that technique, nor did they ...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most frequent form of arrhythmia, and the number of patients with AF has increased with the rapid aging of society (1). AF is an important risk factor for heart failure (2), wherein left ventricular (LV) diastolic function is more closely related to the symptoms, exercise tolerance, and prognosis of patients compared with systolic function (3,4). In the clinical setting, LV diastolic function is mainly evaluated by the transmitral flow velocity pattern using Doppler echocardiography. Evaluation of LV diastolic function is also needed in patients with AF which is extremely challenging because of the lack of atrial systolic transmitral flow wave and the irregularity of Doppler parameters caused by irregular R-R intervals (5-7).. As an alternative method for evaluating LV diastolic function, mitral annular velocity waveforms, which can be recorded using tissue Doppler echocardiography, have been used. The ratio of early diastolic transmitral flow velocity (E) to ...
The aim of the present study was to measure regional ventricular function at rest and during stress in order to assess if patients with Type II diabetes have subclinical myocardial dysfunction and if it is related to risk factors. Seventy subjects (35 patients with Type II diabetes with no symptoms, signs or history of heart disease, and 35 age- and sex-matched healthy controls) had echocardiography at rest and during dobutamine stress. Myocardial velocities were measured off-line from digital loops of colour tissue Doppler. Subendocardial function was assessed from the mean longitudinal velocities of four basal segments (apical views) and radial function from the velocities of the basal posterior wall (parasternal view). Systolic functional reserve was calculated as the increase in velocity from baseline. Longitudinal peak systolic velocity was lower in patients with diabetes, at rest (5.6±1.4 compared with 6.5±1.1 cm/s) and at peak stress (10.9±2.8 compared with 14.3±2.1 cm/s) (both ...

The Tei (or myocardial performance) index has been investigated extensively in the assessment of LV function (5,9,11,16). There is now a growing body of literature evaluating the utility of tissue Doppler imaging and the RV Tei index in patients with RV dysfunction and pulmonary hypertension (4,6-8,12,17,18). The Tei index is derived solely by Doppler measurements and thus is not affected by RV geometry. Initially, the RV Tei index was calculated using pulsed-wave Doppler recordings of RV inflow and outflow (4,6,7), but more recent studies have shown that tissue Doppler imaging of the lateral tricuspid annulus allows simpler (and equally accurate) measurements of RV Tei index (10,12). This method eliminates the need for 2 separate Doppler interrogations (RV inflow and RV outflow) and therefore negates the effect of heart rate variability.. RV dysfunction is associated with an increase in RV Tei index (7), and work in animal models has shown a graded response of the Tei index to increases in RV ...

Previous studies have shown that myocardial ischemia results in changes in the pattern of flow through the mitral valve (1-6). These changes in transmitral flow velocity pattern are most likely determined by disease-induced changes in the underlying diastolic properties of the heart (3,6-8). Knowing which diastolic properties determine the transmitral flow velocity pattern and how interactions between diastolic properties modify the overall transmitral flow velocity pattern would be helpful in understanding the hemodynamics of patients with myocardial ischemia.. Several transmitral flow velocity patterns have been reported during myocardial ischemia (5,6,8-10). In one pattern, early flow velocity is decreased, deceleration time is increased, and late flow velocity is increased (5,6,8). The diastolic determinant changed in this pattern is left ventricular relaxation, which is slowed. Slowed left ventricular relaxation is observed in some patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (11,12)and coronary ...

LVDD was diagnosed (according to the European Society of Cardiology guidelines) by conventional and tissue Doppler echocardiography. Serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) was measured. The location and volume of adipose tissue were assessed by computed tomography (CT) at the level of the fourth lumbar vertebra. Subjects with ...
In a number of patients with EF 60% or more, signs of heart failure are clinically detected. As a rule, such a condition is caused by LV diastolic dysfunction (impaired relaxation processes due to ischemia, cardiosclerosis, hypertrophy of the walls, pericardial effusion, etc.). According to a number of researchers, patients with signs of heart failure caused only by diastolic dysfunction constitute 15-25% of all patients with HF..

Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction is highly prevalent, tends to worsen over time, and is associated with advancing age. Worsening diastolic function can be detected even in apparently healthy persons, the conclusion by the authors of a recent article published in JAMA.. Randomly selected participants 45 years or older (N = 2042) underwent clinical evaluation, medical record abstraction, and echocardiography (examination 1 [1997-2000]). Diastolic left ventricular function was graded as normal, mild, moderate, or severe by validated Doppler techniques. After 4 years, participants were invited to return for examination 2 (2001-2004). The cohort of participants returning for examination 2 (n = 1402 of 1960 surviving [72%]) then underwent follow-up for ascertainment of new-onset heart failure (2004-2010).. During the 4 years between examinations, diastolic dysfunction prevalence increased from 23.8% to 39.2%:. ...
Background: Loading conditions are recognized to influence ventricular function according to the Starling relationship for length/stretch and force. Many modern echocardiographic parameters which have been announced as describing ventricular function and contractile status, may be confounded by uncontrolled and unmeasured load. These studies aimed to measure the relation between four differ-ent types of assessments of ventricular dysfunction and degrees of load. Study examined the myo-cardial performance index (MPI). Study II examined long axis segmental mechanical dyssynchrony. Study III examined tissue velocities, and Study IV examined ventricular twist. All studies aimed to describe the relation of these parameters both to load and to inotropic changes.. Methods: In anesthetized juvenile pigs, left ventricular (LV) pressure and volume were measured continuously and their relationship (LVPVR) was analysed. Preload alterations were brought about by inflation of a balloon tipped catheter in ...
