BACKGROUND Left ventricular cavity dimension, wall thickness, relaxation, and filling increase with exercise training and have a role in enhancing physical performance. We probed whether changes in diastole may develop separately from those in cardiac morphometry and still contribute to improve physical performance. Challenging diastole by preload reduction with standing and integrating mitral flow analysis with the pulmonary venous flow analysis were viewed as a means for detecting fine… CONTINUE READING
