The mechanism whereby aging, in the absence of cardiac disease, may alter the pattern of left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling is unknown. Accordingly, this study was designed to examine the factors that may be in part responsible for aging's effect on the pattern of LV diastolic filling. The LV end-diastolic pressure-volume relation was analyzed in 11… CONTINUE READING
