Single-beat estimation of end-diastolic pressure-volume relationship: a novel method with potential for noninvasive application.
Whereas end-systolic and end-diastolic pressure-volume relations (ESPVR, EDPVR) characterize left ventricular (LV) pump properties, clinical utility of these relations has been hampered by the needExpand
