  • Optimal assessment of left ventricular function requires the use of load-independent indices of myocardial contractility, which often are difficult to obtain in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. We have investigated whether the relation between left ventricular end-systolic stress (ESS) (derived from high-fidelity intraventricular pressure measurements and transesophageal-derived wall thickness) and end-systolic area (ESA) (derived from transesophageal… CONTINUE READING
