Systemic arterial compliance, a major component of aortic input impedance, was determined in 10 patients with congestive heart failure secondary to idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and 11 age-matched control subjects found free of detectable cardiovascular disease. Total arterial compliance was determined from high-fidelity ascending aortic pressure and velocity recordings using 1) the traditional monoexponential aortic diastolic pressure decay and 2) the direct solution of the equation, which… CONTINUE READING
