Early transmitral flow (MiF) patterns depend strongly on the rate of fall of measured left ventricular pressure (Pm) determined by both the active decay of pressure (Pa) due to myocardial relaxation and the increase in pressure due to stretch of passive elements during filling (Pp). This study was designed to uncouple passive forces from deactivation in order to reveal the instantaneous rate and duration of myocardial relaxation. We assumed a parallel combination of passive and active elements… CONTINUE READING
