- Are Pressure-Volume Relations at End-Systole a Reflection of Left Ventricular Myocardial Contractility? Ahmed, S. Sultan; Regan, Timothy J. // Angiology;Feb1983, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p137
The pressure-volume relation at end-systole is reportedly altered by changes in contractility. To explore the potential of this ratio in man 185 subjects including 23 normals (Group I) were studied. In 35 patients of Group II (16 with mitral stenosis, 7 with atrial septal defect, and 12 with cor...
