Regional diastolic function by Doppler echocardiogram

Recommended Posts

Regional diastolic function by tissue Doppler echocardiography in systemic sclerosis (SSc): correlation with clinical variables. The incidence of left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction is increased in SSc, while systolic dysfunction is present in a small percentage of patients. Linear correlation was observed between the extent of the diastolic abnormalities and the duration of disease. Longitudinal myocardial systolic velocities were significantly reduced in patients with abnormal DTI (doppler tissue imaging). E. Rosato. (SpringerLink) Rheumatology International 12/30/2008.
