Conclusions—In the general population, in which most are free of left ventricular systolic dysfunction and restrictive
diastolic filling using conventional echocardiographic parameters, left ventricular dysfunction by TDI is a powerful and
independent predictor of death, especially when systolic performance and diastolic performance are considered together,
recognizing their interdependency and their complex relation to deteriorating cardiac function. (Circulation. 2009;119)
