Good prognostic value of the intraoperative tissue Doppler-derived index E/e' after non-cardiac surgery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The index E/e' derived from tissue Doppler imaging and pulsed Doppler is the ratio of the early transmitral flow velocity and the early mitral annular velocity and it correlates with left ventricular filling pressure. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between intraoperative E/e' and postoperative cardiovascular… (More)
