Abstract

Background: The effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on right ventricular (RV) systolic and diastolic functions and left ventricular (LV) diastolic function have been shown. Whereas LV myocardial performance index (LVMPI), which incorporates ejection and isovolumic relaxation and contraction times and is an index of global ventricular function, has not yet been evaluated in COPD.
