OBJECTIVES This study was designed to evaluate the relative prognostic significance of restrictive left ventricular (LV) filling after acute myocardial infarction. BACKGROUND Data regarding the contribution of diastolic dysfunction to prognosis after myocardial infarction are limited, and the additional value over the assessment of systolic dysfunction is not known. METHODS Serial Doppler echocardiography was performed in 95 patients on days 1, 3 and 7 and 3 months after acute myocardial… CONTINUE READING
