BACKGROUND Intraventricular fluid dynamics can be assessed clinically using imaging. The contribution of vortex structures to left ventricular (LV) diastolic function has never been quantified in vivo. OBJECTIVES This study sought to understand the impact of intraventricular flow patterns on filling and to assess whether impaired fluid dynamics may be a source of diastolic dysfunction. METHODS Two-dimensional flow velocity fields from color Doppler echocardiographic sequences were obtained… CONTINUE READING
