[Correlation between isovolumic and auxotonic indexes of left ventricular contractility at rest and during exercise (author's transl)].

Abstract

The validity of isovolumic parameters of left ventricular contractility in assessing ventricular function at rest has been questioned repeatedly, and with some justification. By contrast, auxotonic parameters such as left ventricular ejection fraction provide a clinically useful index of functional impairment even under resting conditions. The correlation… (More)
