Background: Left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling declines with aging in normal subjects. Tissue Doppler echocardiography can detect ventricular dyssynchrony by comparing tissue velocities at multiple sites. We investigated the influence of aging on LV systolic and diastolic dyssynchrony and global LV diastolic function in normal subjects. Methods: We studied 67 subjects (mean age 56±16, range 26 to 79 years) without significant coronary and valvular heart diseases. Echocardiography was… CONTINUE READING
