ABSTRACT
The article describes the assessment of ventricular mechanics by echocardiographic techniques including tissue doppler imaging, M mode and colour Doppler. It discusses different ventricular deformation patterns and how the assessment of these can be used in the clinical setting. It also distinguishes between left ventricular anatomy and right ventricular anatomy.

    The article presents a case study of a 69-year-old male who was diagnosed with intramyocardial dissection from left ventricle leading to the right ventricular wall with rupture into the pericardium. A transesophageal echocardiography was performed, which revealed an intramyocardial channel from...

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy is considered a heart muscle disorder with predominant involvement in the right ventricle, but also spreads to involve the...

    The article offers information on the clinical utility gene for arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). It mentions that ARVC is an inheritable disease categorized by functional and structural abnormalities of the right ventricle (RV), with or without concomitant disease in left...

    Aims: A depressed left ventricular function (LVF) is sometimes observed during right ventricular apical (RVA) pacing, but any prediction of this adverse effect cannot be done. Right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) pacing is thought to deteriorate LVF less frequently because of a more normal LV...
