Previous studies from our laboratory have shown that the position of the ventricular septum relative to the two ventricles at end-diastole is determined by the instantaneous transseptal pressure gradient (TSG) defined as left ventricular minus simultaneous right ventricular pressure. Since patients with mitral stenosis often have exaggerated leftward (paradoxic) motion of the ventricular septum during early diastole, we studied seven patients with mitral stenosis undergoing cardiac… CONTINUE READING
