Figure 4: Strain and myocardial work analyses in physiological and pathological left ventricular hypertrophy. Upper panels: two-dimensional strain (a) and myocardial work (b) in a power athlete, with normal both global longitudinal strain and myocardial work efficiency. Lower panels: two-dimensional strain (c) and myocardial work (d) in a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Note the impairment in both global and regional strain (especially in the interventricular septal region) as well as the reduced myocardial efficiency
