Abstract: The evaluation of regional right ventricular function by ultrasound remains a challenge. This case report demonstrates the potential value of the new cardiac deformation indices, strain and strain rate imaging, in determining the differing regional abnormalities in longitudinal right ventricular function before and after bilateral lung transplantation. These indices were measured in a patient with severe right ventricular dysfunction as a result of primary pulmonary hypertension.
