Utility of tissue Doppler imaging in predicting outcome in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: There are limited reports in the literature concerning right ventricular (RV) performance in patients with non end-stage idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) who exhibit mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension (PH). We evaluated RV functional impairment in such a cohort using both conventional echocardiography and tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) and in addition we assessed the association of specific TDI indices with survival. METHODS: Twenty-two clinically stable patients with non-e...
