CCI at the ACC Conference in San Diego


 


PhD student Trine S. Fink Håland presented her poster titled "Left ventricular longitudinal function is closely related to ventricular arrhythmias in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy" at the ACC Conference in San Diego on March 22nd.

The poster shows how patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) had reduced systolic function by global longitudinal strain, despite normal function by ejection fraction. It also shows that mechanical dispersion was a strong independent predictor of ventricular arrhythmias and was closely related to the extent of fibrosis.

PhD student Stian Ross also presented his poster at the ACC Conference.
