[Diastolic function of the left ventricle in aortic valve stenosis. Doppler echocardiography].

Abstract

Doppler echocardiographic parameters of LV diastolic function (isovolumic relaxation time, E wave velocity, ratio of E/A wave velocities, mitral valve pressure half time) were compared to catheter data in 35 patients (average age 67 years) with pure or dominant aortic stenosis (mean gradient: 65 +/- 30 mmHg). The isovolumic relaxation time was prolonged in… (More)
