Abstract

Echocardiography holds an established position in diagnosis of the heart. Giving capability of its function and structure assessment it is essential for diagnosing heart failure (HF), differential diagnosis and prognosis. Typical features of congestive HF: left ventricular dimensions end ejection fraction are used to build most common prognostic scales. Nevertheless in the patients with the most severe dysfunction of the left ventricle hemodynamic complications may have more significant prognostic value. These complications are: elevated left ventricular filling pressure and the consequent pulmonary hypertension, volume and pressure overload of the right ventricle with its systolic dysfunction. Both classic and novel echocardiography parameters prove to be useful prognostic tools in the HF with reduced ejection fraction.
