Left ventricular longitudinal relaxation velocity: a sensitive index of diastolic function.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to evaluate maximal longitudinal relaxation velocity of the left ventricle as an index of diastolic function. DESIGN Sixty-four consecutive patients with known or suspected heart failure, referred to echocardiography, were investigated by M-mode recordings and pulsed tissue Doppler recordings of the maximal early… (More)
