The pulsed Doppler and tissue Doppler-derived septal E/e′ ratio is significantly related to invasive measurement of ventricular end-diastolic pressure in biventricular rather than univentricular physiology in patients with congenital heart disease

Abstract

The value of conventional non-invasive Doppler parameters to predict ventricular end-diastolic pressure (EDP) and diastolic function in congenital heart diseases is limited. The aim of our prospective study was to investigate whether the ratio of mitral early blood inflow velocity to early diastolic velocity of the mitral annulus (E/e′) as assessed by… (More)
