Volume 3, Issue 3 , July 2016, , Pages 111-116

  Introduction: Left ventricular remodeling is a relatively prevalent complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and it is associated with higher rates of medical issues and mortality. Left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) and wall motion score index (WMSI) are unable to detect accurately minor ...  Read More

Volume 3, Issue 2 , April 2016, , Pages 53-57

  Introduction: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common dysrhythmia postoperatively after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Myocardial strain and strain-rate imaging is used for the assessment of postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) as a new echocardiographic method. Methods: PubMed and Scopus were ...  Read More

Two-dimentional speckle tracking strain imaging in the assessment of myocardial diastolic function in patients with stable angina pectoris

Somaye Farokhnejad; Mostafa Dastani; Afsoon Fazlinejad; Roya Narenji Sani

Volume 2, Issue 3 , July 2015, , Pages 112-117

  Introduction: Ischemic heart disease is caused mainly by obstruction of coronary arteries. The ischemic assessment through echocardiography is dependent on wall motion abnormality detection during systole. In patients with ischemic heart disease the diastolic function is impaired before systolic function ...  Read More
