Mvannan@uci. Edu abstract cardiac resynchronization therapy (crt) has emerged as an important method to treat patient with symptomatic heart failure with evidence of intraventricular dyssynchrony. Tissue doppler imaging by echocardiography has been shown to be an excellent tool for the assessment of mechanical left ventricular dyssynchrony and the selection of patients for crt. However, there are some patients who do not show symptomatic improvement following crt. One possible explanation for this is the need to optimize not only longitudinal synchrony, but also improve the circumferential and radial dynamics of the left ventricle. Doppler imaging does not allow reliable assessment of the latter because of the angle-dependency of the technique. Velocity vector imaging (vvi) is a newer technique which is angle-independent and thus provides an avenue to evaluate short-axis mechanics of the left ventricle. We describe a case in which vvi was used to assess the left ventricular dynamics in a patient with heart failure who did not respond to crt. generic viagra cheap viagra buy viagra online viagra online viagra without a doctor prescription viagra for sale generic viagra online viagra without a doctor prescription generic viagra online Pmid: 16343165 [pubmed - indexed for medline] publication types, mesh terms publication types case reports mesh terms algorithms blood flow velocity/physiology cardiac pacing, artificial/methods* cardiomyopathies/therapy coronary circulation/physiology echocardiography, doppler/methods* humans male middle aged ventricular dysfunction, left/diagnosis* ventricular dysfunction, left/therapy ventricular dysfunction, left/ultrasonography linkout - more resources full text sources blackwell publishing ebsco ohiolink electronic journal center ovid technologies, inc.
