Assessment of left ventricular function by a power index: an intraoperative study


To investigate whether left ventricular performance can be described independent of loading conditions, twelve patients underwent intraoperatively two cineangiographies of the left ventricle with simultaneous pressure recordings. The first ventriculography was performed with ejecting left ventricle without assistance by the extracorporeal circulation. The… (More)
