To determine whether pulmonary venous flow and mitral inflow measured by transesophageal pulsed Doppler echocardiography can be used to estimate mean left atrial pressure (LAP), we prospectively studied 47 consecutive patients undergoing cardiovascular surgery. We correlated Doppler variables of pulmonary venous flow and mitral inflow with simultaneously obtained mean LAP and changes in pressure measured by left atrial or pulmonary artery catheters. Among the pulmonary venous flow variables… CONTINUE READING
