Background There is limited data on the diagnostic utility of the transmitral to mitral annular velocity (E/E′) by tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) in the presence of regional wall motion abnormalities (RWMA). We aimed to investigate whether the E/E′ is reliable in estimating left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) despite RWMA. Methods One hundred thirty consecutive patients with myocardial infarction (MI) and subsequent RWMA referred for cardiac catheterization and echocardiography to measure LV… CONTINUE READING
