Analysis by ROC curve produced an area under the curve of 0.945 (95% CI0.875 to 0.982) at a cut-off left ventricular ejection fraction of 50% (Fig.

Left ventricular ejection fraction: Comparison of results from planar and SPECT gated blood-pool studies.
During treatment, the systolic function of the left and right ventricles (according to the end-diastolic left-ventricular size (KDRLZH), right ventricle (KDRPZH), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), right ventricular ejection phase (FIPZH), index thicker anterior wall of the right ventricle (ITPPZH), systolic pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP), as well as diastolic function (E/LVA; E/BPH) in patients from the first group returned to normal, and in patients from the control group was carrying a tendency to normalization.
Conclusion: Thirty one percent of the patients developed = 10% decline in left ventricular ejection fraction with the use of doxorubicin in the cumulative dose range of 300-400 mg/m2.
The American College of Cardiology Foundation and the American Heart Association define diastolic heart failure as a condition having the typical signs and symptoms of heart failure with a normal left ventricular ejection fraction, without valvular abnormalities on echocardiography [8].
Stroke volume, at times, may increase normally during upright exercise, despite a decrease in left ventricular ejection fraction.
Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) demonstrated a left ventricular ejection fraction of 65% and a perimembraneous ventricular septal defect (VSD) jet with a 120 mmHg maximal gradient obtained by the continuous wave Doppler.
AS most often arises from age-related degenerative calcified changes to the valve, and is defined as the obstruction of blood flow through the aortic valve during left ventricular ejection.

Plasma BNP levels also increase with decreasing physiological functional capacities, as measured by left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) or exercise-based evaluations [9].
Diastolic heart failure, defined as classic evidence of congestive heart failure with "preserved" or "normal" left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), (1) is often encountered in medical practice.
Upgrading traditional 2 chamber cardiac pacemakers to modern 3 chamber pacemakers--cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices--improves left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), researchers reported online March 16th in the European Heart Journal.
