To determine whether the slopes of the single beat maximal pressure (stress)/volume ratios are sensitive to changes in loading conditions in humans, 16 patients without cardiac disease were studied with simultaneous micromanometer-determined left ventricular pressures and biplane contrast cineangiograms under control conditions and during methoxamine and nitroprusside infusions. Left ventricular volumes were calculated with use of a Simpson's rule algorithm, wall thickness was obtained… CONTINUE READING
