Abstract: Early left ventricular (LV) dysfunction in asymptomatic patients with severe aortic regurgitation (AR) may go undetected due to the lack of a sufficiently sensitive diagnostic tool. Ultrasonic strain/strain rate (S/SR) imaging should now provide such sensitivity in detecting early dysfunction in regional LV systolic deformation. The aim of this study was to understand and define the changes in LV regional systolic deformation based on S/SR imaging in patients with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic AR.
