Mentions: Patients with MR (mean regurgitant volume 42 ml ± 20) had impaired longitudinal and circumferential systolic deformation (Table 1) and increased global ECV (Figure 1). These changes preceded a difference in LV ejection fraction, MAPSE (Table 1) or increase in NT-proBNP (median 85 ng/L IQR 280). Global ECV was inversely correlated with Vo2 max (r = - 0.771, p < 0.05). Nine patients had patchy diffuse LE in non-coronary artery territories primarily within the basal segments with an increased ECV compared to remote "normal" myocardium.
