Doppler transmitral flow patterns are partially dependent on age. We investigated the correlations between the age-adjusted transmitral flow patterns, hemodynamic indexes, and the coronary and clinical outcome in 206 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and 102 normal control subjects. The peak flow velocity at atrial contraction was significantly lower in 50 of the 206 patients (24%) (low-A group) than in the 102 normal controls. Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure was significantly… CONTINUE READING
