Table 1 Potential clinical applications of the ReVISION method

From: Quantification of the relative contribution of the different right ventricular wall motion components to right ventricular ejection fraction: the ReVISION method

Scenarios of clinical interest and suggested functional alterations
Healthy subjects Normal contribution of the three components
Post-cardiac surgery patients Potential predominance of radial displacement
Heart transplanted patients Long-term predominance of radial displacement
Pressure overload conditions (pulmonary hypertension, acute pulmonary embolism) Potential reduction of radial displacement
Volume overload conditions (pulmonary regurgitation, atrial septal defect) Potential reduction of longitudinal displacement
Athlete’s heart Effects of regular and acute exhaustive exercise
Right ventricular ischemia Regional and/or global abnormalities
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia Regional and/or global abnormalities
Congenital heart diseases Depending on the pathology
