It is thought that heart failure (HF) patients may benefit from the evaluation of mechanical (dys)synchrony, and an independent inverse relationship between myocardial perfusion and ventricular synchrony has been suggested. We explore the relationship between quantitative myocardial perfusion and synchrony parameters when accounting for the presence and extent of fixed perfusion defects in patients with chronic HF.
