"Left ventricular filling pressures can be estimated reliably by combining mitral inflow early diastolic velocity (E) and annulus velocity (E')," cardiologists in the United States explained. "An increased E/E' ratio reflects elevated filling pressures and may be useful in assessing an abnormal increase in filling pressures for patients with diastolic dysfunction."
J.W. Ha and colleagues at the Mayo Clinic and Mayo Foundation conducted a study "to evaluate the feasibility of supine bicycle exercise Doppler echocardiography for assessing left...
