Diastolic compliance of the left ventricle in man.


Two coordinates of left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (P) and volume (V) were provided by the infusion of angiotensin in 22 patients. The slope (k) of the ln P-V relation, coupled with knowledge of the operating (end-diastolic) pressure allows determination of end-diastolic volume compliance (dV/VdP). Estimates of end-diastolic compliance from a single… (More)
