IN CHRONIC CARDIAC DISEASE, the left ventricular diastolic pressure does not provide a reliable guide to the diastolic left ventricular volume,' and measurement of chamber volume, shape and wall thickness are necessary to identify changes in the myocardial stress-strain relation.' Under acute conditions, the stiffness of the left ventricular chamber progressively increases as passive diastolic filling occurs,3 but whether a single equation can describe this nonlinear pressure-volume curve in… CONTINUE READING
