Abstract
Cardiomyopathy confers a poor prognosis. Early recognition and intervention is key to improve outcome. Classic methods of assessment of LV systolic dysfunction such Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) suffer from wide variance that limits their utility in detection of minor changes in systolic function on serial testing. In addition, the changes in LVEF appear late after significant myocardial damage has occured. This has been shown to affect prognosis of patients. Strain has been shown to be an accurate sensitive marker of LV function with leass varaiance than traditional methods of LV systolic function. It has been shown to drop early in the natural history of many systemic diease that affect the heart such as diabetic cardiomyopathy. Strain shows great promise in management of cardiomyopathies because its efficacy in early detection and potentially effects of treatment.
