Özet

Objective: Impairment in left ventricular (LV) function due to excessive ventricular extrasystoles (VESs) occurs during long-time follow-up. Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) has been shown to be superior to conventional methods for evaluating cardiac functions. We aimed to use STE for early detection of LV dysfunction in patients with apparently normal hearts who have frequent VESs.
