Noninvasive assessment of intrinsic ventricular load dynamics in dilated cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

On the basis of hemodynamic theory, a new noninvasive method is developed to provide improved insights into the significance of depressed Doppler left ventricular ejection variables in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. The net force (F) associated with intraventricular flow throughout ejection can be written as: F = A.dv/dt + B.v2, where v is the… (More)
