Ejection fraction, endocardial fractional shortening ([sub.
Left ventricular fractional shortening was calculated by the following formula: [left ventricular-end diastolic diameter (LVDD)--left ventricular-end systolic diameter x 100]/LVDD.
Left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic dimension, LV end-systolic dimension, % fractional shortening, diastolic thickness of the ventricular septum and the posterior LV wall and LV mass were determined, The LV ejection fraction was calculated from the conventional apical 4-chamber images using the biplane Simpson's method (8).
Risk factors for stroke include being aged 75 years or older and having hypertension, impaired left ventricular systolic function (an ejection fraction of 35% or less or a fractional shortening of less than 25%), diabetes, prior thromboembolism, or rheumatic mitral stenosis.
