OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to explore the full range of tricuspid valve regurgitation velocity (TRV) at rest and with exercise in disease free individuals. Additionally we examined the relationship of stroke volume (SV), cardiac output (CO) and TRV to exercise capacity. BACKGROUND Doppler evaluation of TRV can be used to estimate pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
