Doppler Echocardiography for the Estimation of LV Filling Pressure in Patients With Mitral Annular Calcification.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES This study sought to identify Doppler parameters useful for the assessment of left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) in patients with mitral annular calcification (MAC) and to develop and validate a decision algorithm for assessing LVFP in such patients. BACKGROUND Predicting LVFP in the presence of MAC is problematic. METHODS Prospectively… (More)
