Assessment of Echocardiographic Imaging in Diagnosis of Heart Failure

Nisreen Haj, Mohamed Yousef, Elsafi Ahmed, Ikhlas Abdelaziz

The objective of the study was to assess echocardiographic imaging in diagnosis of heart failure.180 patients (62female and 118 male) with heart failure sign were enrolled. Their ages ranged between (20 85) years. The study was conducted at two hospitals in period from November 2014to September 2017. The results of the study showed that, 118 cases (65.6 %) were male and 62 cases (34.4 %) were female. The incidence of the heart failure was high among the age group mean 60.56 that mean the risk of heart failure increase with age. In view of the importance of Ejection fraction by using 2D echo, the results showed that mean EF 38.94 (mnimum15 maximum 60). The left ventricular ejection fraction volume represents that the maximum was 60 % and this was normal value unless the patient had right side failure or diastolic dysfunction which is called heart failure with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (PLVEF). The hypertension was predominant cause of heart failure in Sudan (36.1 %). The common finding of the study was left ventricular systolic dysfunction LVSD which represents about 121 patients 67.7 %. The study concluded that the correlation is significant at the 0.01 level. between the left ventricular internal diastolic dimeter LVIDD left ventricular internal systolic dimeter LVISD and ejection fraction EF equal -.376 (negative)
