[Doppler echocardiography measurement of diastolic filling parameters in acute changes of pre- and afterload in healthy probands].


For a more precise understanding of the net effects of acute alterations of pre- and afterload on left-ventricular filling, loading conditions were altered in normal subjects. The specific purpose of this study was to investigate if Dopplerechocardiographically derived transmitral flow patterns are able to differentiate the manner of loading condition. In… (More)
