Doppler echocardiographic method to determine early and late diastolic filling volume separately. Validation and relationship between filling velocity and volume.

We devised a pulsed Doppler echocardiographic method of separately calculating early diastolic filling volume (EDFV) and late diastolic filling volume during atrial contraction (LDFV) and observed a relationship between diastolic filling volume and velocity in thirty patients with coronary artery disease. By analysing the transmitral flow velocity curve and… CONTINUE READING
