Changes in diastolic stiffness and tone of the left ventricle during angina pectoris.

Abstract

Reported elevations of left ventricular filling pressures during angina suggest increased myocardial stiffness. Both left ventricular beginningand end-diastolic pressures and volumes were measured in seven patients before, during, and after angina induced by atrial pacing. During nine episodes of angina, mean end-diastolic pressure rose from 12 to 29 mm Hg… (More)
