Figure 2

Representation of principal strain direction at end-systole computed from the deformation at the sub-endocardial level averaged from the ( A ) Controls group, ( B ) TAV-Athletes group, ( C ) BAV-Athletes group. Strain lines are colored by their angle as by the colorbar on the bottom, to emphasize the positive angle of endocardial right-handed helical fibers (clockwise moving from base to apex) and negative angle for epicardial left-handed helix.
