BACKGROUND Tei index (TI) is a Doppler parameter which reflects combined systolic and diastolic function. We aimed to study the relationship between TI, both traditional and tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) echocardiographic parameters and neurohormonal profile in outpatients with diastolic dysfunction expressed by an abnormal transmitral flow pattern. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 67 consecutive outpatients with diastolic dysfunction (abnormal transmitral flow pattern) were studied; all… CONTINUE READING
