OBJECTIVES This study was designed to evaluate the right ventricular function by means of the determination of right ventricular systolic time intervals measured in pulmonary artery flow detected by Doppler. BACKGROUND Left ventricular systolic time intervals have been used to evaluate left ventricular performance. There is, however, no information as to whether right ventricular systolic time intervals may be useful in the evaluation of right ventricular function. METHODS Simultaneous… CONTINUE READING
