MRI-based Multiparametric Strain Analysis Predicts Contractile Recovery after Aortic Valve Replacement for Aortic Insufficiency
Journal of Cardiac Surgery, 05/25/2012
Brady BD et al. – Global preoperative MRI–based multiparametric strain predicts global strain postoperatively, as well as improvement of regions with impaired contractile function. Global contractile function is an important correlate with improvement in regionally impaired contractile function, perhaps reflecting total aortic insufficiency (AI)volume–overload burden.
