OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility, accuracy and reproducibility of a new and simple method for determining ejection fraction by Doppler echocardiography. This method should theoretically be less influenced by the distortions of left ventricular geometry caused by prior myocardial infarction. DESIGN Two groups of patients (total 114) were evaluated independently at the Quebec and Ottawa Heart Institutes (60 and 54 patients, respectively). All were referred for radionuclide angiography… CONTINUE READING
