A precise and accurate assessment of left ventricular (LV) contractility is of utmost importance in terms of prognosis in most cardiac pathologies . Given the limitations of ejection fraction (EF) and global longitudinal strain (GLS) due to their load dependency, a novel imaging tool called myocardial work (MW) has emerged as a promising method for LV performance evaluation . MW is a novel, less load-dependent method based on computation of myocardial strain–arterial blood pressure curves . This method provides a more detailed assessment of segmental and global LV function incorporating the patient ’ s LV pressure and is derived by brachial artery pressure utilizing an empiric reference curve adjusted to the duration of the isovolumic and ejection phases as determined by echocardiography . The clinical implications of this unique method have been expanding in the last few years, which attest to the robust additive role of MW in routine practice.
