129 Dynamic Alteration of the Interventricular Septum in Volume Overload of the Left Ventricle


The response of the interventricular septum(IVS) and the left ventricular(LV) posterior wall(PW) to LV volume overload was evaluated by echocardiography in 22 patients(pts.) with ventricular septal defect (Qp:Qs>2:1)(Group A) and 8 pts. with isolated mitral regurgitation(LA/AO> 1.5:1)(Group B).
