英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Purpose(#br)To evaluate potential relationships between different components of left ventricular (LV) function and histopathological evidence for myocardial fibrosis in patients undergoing heart transplantation.(#br)Methods(#br)The study population included patients with advanced heart failure, referred for an echocardiographic examination before heart transplantation. Traditional LV function measurements and global longitudinal strain (GLS) by speckle tracking echocardiography, averaging all LV segments in 4-, 2-, and 3-chamber views were obtained in all subjects. LV tissue samples were obtained from all patients who underwent heart transplantation. Myocardial fibrosis was assessed using Masson's staining.(#br)Results(#br)Of 106 patients referred for cardiac transplantation,...
