L eft ventricular (LV) diastolic function (LVDF) is an important determinant of exercise tolerance in patients with normal and depressed ejection fraction (EF). Several studies have also shown that noninvasive Doppler measurements of LV relaxation and filling pressures are predictors of outcome in several patients with cardiovascular (CV) disorders, including patients with HFrEF, HFpEF, atrial fibrillation, acute myocardial infarction (MI), mitral regurgitation, endstage renal disease, and… CONTINUE READING
