Özet

Diffuse systemic-pulmonary anastomoses and chronic hypoxemia may Bronchiectasis; result in increase in ventricular work in bronchiectasis. We aimed to assess right Echocardiography; ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (W) functions in patients with bronchiectasis by Function; using tissue Doppler-derived myocardial performance index (MPI), which is a novel and more sensitive parameter than conventional ventricular function parameters.
