Impact of negative inotropic drugs on accuracy of diastolic stress echocardiography for evaluation of left ventricular filling pressure

Abstract

The ratio of early diastolic trans-mitral flow velocity to tissue-Doppler mitral annular early diastolic velocity (E/e'), and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure(LVEDP) have been shown to be correlated at rest, provided that patients are not on positive inotropic drugs. Data concerning the latter correlation during exercise stress are conflicting… (More)
