The relation between the apex cardiogram and changes in left ventricular pressure measured by micromanometer, and dimension measured by echocardiography, was studied in 12 normal subjects and 64 patients with heart disease. In 12 patients, the apex cardiogram was delayed with respect to simultaneous left ventricular pressure by 17 +/- 18 ms during the upstroke and 28 +/- 16 ms during the downstroke. In the normal subjects, changes in left ventricular dimension during the upstroke and downstroke… CONTINUE READING
