Abstract


Background: Diastolic dysfunction is an important cause of left heart failure and its role in predicting adverse
cardiovascular outcomes is well known. Evaluation for the presence of diastolic dysfunction should be a part of every
adult echocardiographic examination in patients presenting with signs or symptoms of heart failure. Coronary artery
disease is a well known cause of diastolic dysfunction. In this study we reviewed and compared the common
echocardiographic methods to detect diastolic dysfunction in patients with unstable angina and Non ST Elevation MI.
Aims and Objectives: To compare various doppler echocardiographic techniques in the detection of Diastolic
dysfunction in patients of Non ST elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome
Materials and Methods: It was a prospective, one year study in the department of cardiology, CMC Ludhiana from
1/04/2016 to 31/03/2017. Patients enrolled in the study were subjected to 12 Lead ECG and complete
Echocardiographic examination to assess Diastolic dysfunction


Keywords
