OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to evaluate the difference in the respiratory change from expiration to inspiration (%E) between pulsed Doppler mitral inflow (MV) and pulmonary venous flow (PV) velocities in patients with constrictive pericarditis (CP) and to describe the influence of atrial fibrillation (AF). BACKGROUND The difference in %E between… CONTINUE READING
