OBJECTIVE We sought to study the evolution of biventricular filling properties after coronary artery bypass grafting. BACKGROUND The evolution of diastolic function as defined with newer echocardiographic modalities after coronary artery bypass grafting surgery is unknown in patients with preoperative left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. METHODS Transthoracic echocardiography was performed preoperatively and 48 hours and 6 months after coronary artery bypass grafting in 49 patients… CONTINUE READING
