Abstract

Objective: Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction in acute pulmonary embolism (APE) has been associated with increased mortality and morbidity. The aim of the present study was to assess the timing and magnitude of regional RV functions using speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) and their relationship to early hospital mortality in patients with APE.
