    HEADLINE: CARDIOMYOPATHY: Doppler imaging shows postsystolic shortening with
    delayed emptying of the apex

    BODY:
    Doppler imaging shows postsystolic shortening in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
    with delayed emptying of the apex.

    According to recent research published in the Echocardiography-a Journal of
    Cardiovascular Ultrasound and Allied Techniques, "We report a case of a
    92-year-old woman with syncope and exertional dyspnea, who on echocardiographic
    examination proved to have hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

    "Doppler flow revealed delayed emptying of the apex, extending into the early
    filling phase," wrote A. Stoylen and colleagues, Norwegian University of Science
    & Technology, University Trondheim Hospital.

    The researchers concluded: "Tissue Doppler and strain rate imaging
    illustrated postsystolic shortening corresponding to the apical ejection,
    demonstrating that the apical flow was due to wall thickening resulting in
    active ejection. The imaging methods and mechanics of postsystolic shortening
    are discussed."

    Stoylen and colleagues published their study in Echocardiography-a Journal of
    Cardiovascular Ultrasound and Allied Techniques (Post-systolic shortening in
    nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with delayed emptying of the apex: A
    Doppler flow, tissue Doppler and strain rate imaging case study. Echocardiogr-j
    Cardiovasc Ult, 2003;20(2):167-171).
