A Study of Strain Echocardiography in Assessment of Valvular Heart Disease

Overview

About this study

Classical echocardiographic assessment of heart valves is critical in determination of disease severity. However, echocardiography has only limited ability to predict how well an individual patient will do at time of surgery. New echocardiographic technology allows us to measure new, more refined parameters of your heart’s performance. This study is investigating whether these new parameters are better in predicting outcomes.
