Left Ventricular Function Improve after Bench Press: A Speckle Tracking and 3D Echocardiography Study
Speckle tracking echo cardiography is introducing new hypotheses about the patho physiology of cardiovascular elite athlete. The Speckle Tracking allows us to evaluate the strain (S), the strain rate (SR), tissue velocities and displacement; being it less influenced by the angle of study, or by the load nor sex, nor they age or systolic blood pressure values. Ventricular remodeling that athlete produce is very variable, depending on the type of sport, age, gender, time or type of training, race or genetics. We consider that there are two types of remodeled, concentric and eccentric.
