Improvement in left ventricular deformational indices following radiofrequency ablation in patients with tachycardia: A comparative study between AVRT and AVNRT regarding left ventricular strain and strain rates

Background: Ablation will efficiently lead to sinus rhythm preservation, which consequently improves left ventricular function; however, the strain rate and its indices as functional systolic factors of the left ventricle have not been studied. Objectives: To assess the improvements in different pat...
