Chronic heart failure is the cause of hospitalization of every fifth cardiological patient. Number of patients with heart failure symptoms that have preserved or intermediate left ventricle ejection fraction increases, i.e. grows portion of diastolic heart failure grows. Gray scale myocardial strain techniques provide an opportunity to detect myocardial dysfunction on early stages when absence of clinically significant symptoms are absent and conventional echocardiography is not informative. The goal of this study is to review parameters of myocardial strain and its clinical applicability in patients with chronic heart failure.
