Accuracy of two-dimensional speckle tracking parameters reflecting left atrial function in predicting outcome among outpatients affected by heart failure.
Background. The two-dimensional speckle tracking analysis (2D-ST) is a new useful tool in order to evaluate both atrial and ventricular function. Aim of the study. To evaluate the accuracy of the 2D-ST measures reflecting atrial and ventricular function in predicting the outcome among outpatients affected by chronic heart failure…
