OBJECTIVES The present study aimed to investigate the mechanism of intracavitary changes in filling pattern during acute ischemic left ventricular failure and during beta-adrenergic blockade. BACKGROUND Recent clinical studies with color M-mode Doppler imaging have shown abnormal intracavitary filling patterns in the diseased ventricle. METHODS In open chest anesthetized dogs with intracardiac micromanometers and myocardial segment-length crystals, global ischemic left ventricular failure… CONTINUE READING
