The diagnostic usefulness of the mitral E/E' ratio (derived from tissue Doppler imaging) as an estimate of left ventricular filling pressures was studied in 28 patients with diastolic heart failure(More)
BACKGROUND Transmitral flow patterns derived from Doppler echocardiography carry prognostic information in patients with chronic heart failure and systolic dysfunction. In such patients, chronic(More)

In patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) predicted poor outcome. Clinical predictors of NT-pro-BNP and its usefulness in the presence of(More)
Diastolic filling of the left ventricle is often impaired in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) in the absence of systolic wall motion abnormalities or previous myocardial infarction. The(More)
