[Evaluation of transmitral flow velocity profile in supine and sitting positions by pulsed Doppler echocardiography in elderly hypertensives].

Abstract

To evaluate left ventricular diastolic filling properties in elderly hypertensive case with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), we investigated the influence of postural change from a supine to sitting position on transmitral flow velocity profile as assessed by pulsed Doppler echocardiography in 12 normotensives (N group) and 24 hypertensives, aged 65 to… (More)
