Abstract
Although the prognostic role of right ventricular (RV) dysfunction in heart failure (HF) is well recognised, several echocardiographic<br>parameters are currently used in clinical practice, with potential overlaps, time wasting, and uncertainties about their relative informative value in terms of risk stratification. The aim of the current study is to compare the prognostic performance of tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE), pulsed wave tissue Doppler systolic velocity (S’), and fractional area change (FAC) in a population of patients with<br>systolic HF.
