AIM To study the prognostic significance of left ventricular diastolic function evaluated by transmitral and pulmonary venous flow velocities obtained in the early phase of a first acute myocardial infarction in relation to later development of congestive heart failure. METHODS Pulsed Doppler echocardiography of transmitral and pulmonary venous flow was assessed in 65 consecutive patients with a first myocardial infarction within 1 h of arrival in the coronary care unit.
