Abstract

Cardiac failure plays an increasing role in the daily practice of cardiologists and internists. Cardiac failure is purely diastolic in nearly 40% of cases. Whether purely diastolic or mixed, cardiac failure requires appropriate management in the long term. A step by step approach is often necessary and echocardiography with Doppler analysis of blood flow is certainly one of the most pertinent methods of following up these patients. In addition, new technologies now provide access to quantifiable regional left ventricular systolic and diastolic function: Doppler tissue and strain rate imaging will certainly be an additional help for the adaptation of strategies of management of cardiac failure in the near future.
