Abstract

Systolic alterations in left ventricular (LV) myocardial function have been reported previously in patients with diastolic dysfunction (DD). Recent advances in real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) enable the measurement of a set of parameters previously difficult to obtain with standard two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE). The aim of this study was to evaluate global 3DE LV contraction in patients with and without DD who had normal ejection fraction (EF).
