[Effect of coronary revascularization by percutaneous coronary transluminal angioplasty on the diastolic filling of the left ventricle].


Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) is useful to study the cardiac function in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling is often altered in CAD and Doppler-echocardiography can be used in order to assess the behavior of LV diastolic filling. Thus, 68 patients, divided into 2 groups (52 with CAD… (More)
