Abstract Tissue Doppler is an ultrasound tool representing a useful completion of standard Doppler echocardiographic examination, The placement of pulsed tissue Doppler sample volume at the level of the different sites of the mitral annulus allows to obtain information on left ventricular global longitudinal (systolic and diastolic) function, whereas the sampling of tricuspid lateral annulus gives similar information on the right ventricular chamber.

Abstract

Abstract Tissue Doppler is an ultrasound tool representing a useful completion of standard Doppler echocardiographic examination, The placement of pulsed tissue Doppler sample volume at the level of the different sites of the mitral annulus allows to obtain information on left ventricular global longitudinal (systolic and diastolic) function, whereas the sampling of tricuspid lateral annulus gives similar information on the right ventricular chamber. Myocardial early diastolic velocity (Em) is a marker of ventricular diastolic relaxation and the ratio obtainable between transmitral (or transtricuspid) E velocity and annular Em (E/Em ratio) is an accurate index of the level of filling pressure of the assessed ventricular chamber. Myocardial systolic velocity (Sm) as well as the frequency of acceleration of presystolic velocity, occurring during isovolumic contraction time, are indexes of systolic performance and their reduction is evident in several cardiac pathologies. Tissue Doppler-derived systolic and diastolic indexes have a recognized prognostic value in heart failure and after acute myocardial infarction. In these conditions they are able to predict both left ventricular remodeling and mortality.
