Özet

PurposeWhether pathologic alterations of right ventricle (RV) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affect intra- and interventricular dyssynchrony due to changes in mechanical activation of the septum and RV is unclear. The aim of this study was to determine mechanical activation and its changes after pulmonary rehabilitation program (PRP) with speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) in COPD patients.
