Abstract

In case of a healthy heart basal part of the left ventricle rotates clockwise in systole, while the apex rotates counter-clockwise. This sort of squeezing-turning motion is called "twisting" of the heart. The aim of the current review is to summarize knowledge regarding left ventricular rotation and twist as well as methodological aspects of their evaluation.
