An important number of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy have improved their left ventricular function with an optimal treatment. However, it is not well understood whether remodeling represents a recovery in left ventricular (LV) hemodinamics1. In this abstract, we discuss the capacity of the ejection fraction to represent disease remission, by analyzing LV blood flow.
