BACKGROUND We conducted a retrospective study to specify the effect of age and gender on echocardiographic left ventricular diastolic function parameters. METHODS We included echocardiograms done in our institution between 1995 and 2007, for which data on diastolic function were available. In order to target a population as close aspossible to healthy subjects, echocardiograms reporting abnormal contraction, valvulopathy or extreme data were excluded. RESULTS A total of 14,298 patients… CONTINUE READING
