    Background/Aim. Early detection of left ventricle (LV) systolic dysfunction could be a clue for surgical treatment in patients with significant aortic stenosis (AS). Therefore, we evaluated LV peak of global longitudinal strain (PGLS) using speckle tracking imaging at rest and during low-dose...

    The operative goals of the repair of postinfarction left ventricular aneurysms are to correct the size and geometry of the left ventricle in order to reduce wall tension and paradoxical movement and to improve the systolic function. Endoventriculoplasty has become the gold standard, since the...

    Abstract: Our experience with the Sapien trans-apical aortic valve (Edwards Lifesciences Inc., Irvine, CA, USA) has been straightforward without per-procedural mortality except in 1/16 consecutive cases who developed non-apical haemorrhage early after valve implantation. We describe the case of...

    The aim of this study was to analyze the left ventricular (LV) geometric changes occurring in chronic pressure overload due to valvular aortic stenosis (AS). Fifty-six adult patients (30 women, 26 men, mean age seventy-two � nine years, range forty-five to eighty-five years) with isolated...
