One of the most important objectives in cardiology is to gain knowledge about the function of the left ventricle (LV). The patient's prognosis is closely related to LV function in nearly all cardiac diseases affecting myocardial function. The ventricular mechanics are complicated. LV mechanics consist of longitudinal and circumferential shortening and lengthening, radial Cited by: Impact of Contrast-enhanced Echocardiography on Global Left Ventricular Function Assessment. Global left ventricular function was determined based on end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes and EF. Table 1 displays end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes, as well as EF, for the four imaging techniques determined by off-site reader one for each.

Diseases with altered ventricular function. Pharmacological manipulation of ventricular : Paperback. In recent years diastolic function has received greater recognition for its impact on overall cardiac performance.
Diastole is no longer regarded as a passive phase of the cardiac cycle, but rather as a complex sequence of interrelated events, which are dependent upon loading conditions, heart rate, and contractility, and ultimately influence the systolic function of the left ventricle (LV).
In most clinical settings, the assessment of ventricular systolic function Assessment of ventricular function book performed qualitatively and relies heavily on the scanning ability and trained interpretive eye of the echocardiographer.
1, 2 The ability to accurately assess global and regional ventricular systolic function is one of the most difficult transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) skills to acquire, and there is no.
Visual assessment of regional and global ventricular function assessment is subjective and leads to significant variability in interpretation. The heart is a mechanical organ and undergoes cyclic deformation in systole and diastole. This deformation can be measured.
Left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (LVEF) is a simple measure of global systolic function that pervades the risk evaluation and management of many cardiovascular diseases.
However, this parameter is limited not only by technical challenges, but also by pathophysiological entities where the ratio of stroke volume to LV cavity size is preserved.

Among patients with coronary heart disease, left ventricular function is actually a stronger predictor of death than the atherosclerotic burden. Assessment of the size, mass, geometry, and function of the left ventricle is fundamental for the 5/5(4).
Rapid assessment of the left ventricular function using echo. Because of the inaccuracy in volume measurement, assessment of right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) based on 2D echocardiography (2DE) is not recommended. 1, 9, 12 Instead, visual assessment is performed to gauge RV size relative to that of the LV (Figure ; Video ).
13 Normally, the RV is only two thirds the size of the LV in the apical four-chamber view. Assessment of left ventricular (LV) systolic function is important for diagnosis, management, follow-up, and prognostic evaluation of patients in a variety of clinical settings.
Accurate and reproducible determination of LV systolic function is important given the key role this plays in clinical practice. Left ventricular size, measured on the parasternal long-axis view as the end-diastolic diameter, may also factor into the assessment of a patient’s candidacy for LVAD, as pre-LVAD end-diastolic diameters less than cm may be associated with an increased risk of postoperative morbidity and mortality.

Parameters for quantification of left ventricular function ”Eyeballing” of LV function. The so called „eyeballing“ is a visual assessment of left ventricular function. It is based on observation of the regional myocardial function in other words the wall thickening and endocardial motion of several myocardial segments.
echocardiography is the usual initial test in dyspneic patients, but its application to right ventricular (RV) analysis is challenging. RV evaluation involves 3 steps, starting with quantification of afterload and pre-load.

Ventricular pressure is a measure of blood pressure within the ventricles of the heart. Left.
