Assessment of Right Ventricular Mechanics in Patients with Mitral Stenosis by Two-Dimensional Deformation Imaging
Echocardiography, 06/08/2012Tanboga IH et al.
The authors demonstrated that patients with mitral stenosis (MS) had lower right ventricular (RV) functions using 2D strain imaging and this is independent from severity of MS. In the detection of subclinical RV dysfunction in patients with MS, 2D strain imaging appears to be useful.
