Left Ventricular Torsion ― A New Echocardiographic Prognosticator in Patients With Non-Ischemic Dilated Cardiomyopathy ―
Left ventricular (LV) torsion is a key parameter in cardiac function and predicts functional capacity (FC) more appropriately than LV ejection fraction (EF). We sought to investigate LV torsion as a marker of hospitalization for worsening heart failure (HF) in non-ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) patients. Methods and Results: The 91 outpatients with newly diagnosed DCM (53±13 years, 20% female) were evaluated with 3D speckle-tracking imaging and followed up for 12 months; 43 healthy sex-doi:10.1253/circj.cj-18-0986 pmid:30662022 fatcat:ketf5uz5wjbm3onmkg665mm7hu
