Example text

One of the most studied applications of TDI is the evaluation of LV dyssynchrony. Intersegmental delay in peak systolic longitudinal contraction between different segments (abnormal >65 ms), and the standard deviation of time to peak velocity of 12 basal- and mid-LV segments (abnormal>30 ms) are parameters of LV dyssynchrony [30, 31]. Several studies have reported good sensitivity and specificity of TDI techniques in predicting echocardiographic and clinical response after cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) [32–34].

8, EDT 140 ms (b), LVEF = 20 % (a). The combination of LVEF<35 % and RFP with EDT<150 ms is highly suggestive of increased LVFP. LAVi was 51 ml/m2 (a) and E/e’sep = 20 (c), also suggestive of high LVFP. At left heart catheterization the measured LVEDP was 20 mm Hg, confirming the echo estimates 3 Assessment of Left Ventricular Systolic and Diastolic Function by Echocardiography 49 While normal values of the global peak systolic strain are usually higher than 20 % in absolute values, figures less than 16 % are highly sensitive and specific for the identification of patients with prior myocardial infarction [27].

Production of ROS leads to formation of peroxynitrite (ONOO−) and reduced nitric oxide (NO) bioavailability, both of which lower soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) activity in adjacent cardiomyocytes. Lower sGC activity decreases cyclic guanosine monophosphate concentration and protein kinase G (PKG) activity. Low PKG activity increases resting tension (Fpassive) of cardiomyocytes because of hypophosphorylation of titin and removes the brake on prohypertrophic stimuli inducing cardiomyocyte hypertrophy.
