Prognosis in cardiac disorders is determined by left ventricular (LV) function and hence, its precise estimation is of utmost importance. Myocardial work is a new advanced technique based on computation by incorporating systolic blood pressure into strain analysis. The aim of this review article is to provide an overview and additive value of this technique for the assessment of LV systolic function. The article includes the evolution of this technique from invasive to noninvasive mode, the method of acquiring and measuring it, normal reference values, its role in various cardiac conditions as described in the current literature, and potential limitations.
