Abstract

Both left and right ventricular systolic and diastolic function are impaired in patients with uremia. The MPI could be measured by tissue Doppler echocardiography, and we suggest that this index provides a novel, noninvasive method for clinical research on global myocardial performance in patients with uremia.
