Echocardiographic strain imaging allows more precise evaluation of cardiac function and provides new insights into the complex cardiac mechanics. Global longitudinal strain is found to be clinically useful in various valvular heart diseases. It provides additional diagnostic and prognostic information besides standard echocardiographic and clinical parameters. In this review, a summary of current clinical applications, limitations, and future of strain echocardiography in patients with valvular heart diseases is discussed.
