Name: Journal of echocardiography
Vortex formation time (VFT) is a continuous measure of the left ventricular (LV) filling that integrates all phases of diastole. This has been previously studied in patients with heart failure. This s...
The purpose of this study was to investigate echocardiographic changes in left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling and left atrial (LA) strain mechanics following prolonged exercise. Ten male triathlet...
Hypoxia challenges left ventricular (LV) function due to reduced energy supply. Conflicting results exist whether high-altitude exposure impairs LV diastolic function and thus contributes to the high ...
Cardiologic diagnostics in stroke patients is designed to identify heart disease as a potential cause of stroke. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of low ejection fraction (EF) and left...
The elevated preoperative ratio of early transmitral flow velocity to early diastolic velocity of the mitral annulus (E/e') as an echocardiographic index of left ventricular filling pressure is known ...
In patients with Doppler echocardiographic signs of elevated LV filling pressures despite preserved LV systolic function after AMI treatment with the phosphodiesterase inhibitor sildenafil...
In the present study, we assessed the relation between diastolic dysfunction and myocardial fibrosis in hypertensive patients without diabetes mellitus. A total of 20 medically treated amb...
Diastolic function may be evaluated by different measurements on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). They include mitral inflow velocities obtained by pulsed-wave doppler (PW) : peak e...
The goal of this pilot study is to effectively treat hypertension in subjects with either known or newly diagnosed hypertension and concurrent evidence of diastolic dysfunction. In patient...
Retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients investigated in a neurorehabilitation ward after a first hemispheric stroke. Postural and gait disorders in relation to referential of ve...
The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).
The volume of the HEART, usually relating to the volume of BLOOD contained within it at various periods of the cardiac cycle. The amount of blood ejected from a ventricle at each beat is STROKE VOLUME.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease in which the ventricular walls are excessively rigid, impeding ventricular filling. It is marked by reduced diastolic volume of either or both ventricles but normal or nearly normal systolic function. It may be idiopathic or associated with other diseases (ENDOMYOCARDIAL FIBROSIS or AMYLOIDOSIS) causing interstitial fibrosis.
The amount of BLOOD pumped out of the HEART per beat not to be confused with cardiac output (volume/time).
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.

Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
