We studied the relationship between myocardial contractile state and left ventricular functional response to exercise in 14 asymptomatic patients with isolated moderate-to-severe aortic regurgitation and six control subjects. The slope of the systolic blood pressure-left ventricular end-systolic volume (pressure-volume) relationship determined by radionuclide ventriculography during angiotensin infusion was used as an indirect measure of myocardial contractility and was compared with left… CONTINUE READING
