Abstract

The differential effects of alterations in the diastolic filling period of the left ventricle and in cardiac flow upon the mean diastolic left atrial-left ventricular gradient have been investigated in 8 subjects with atrial fibrillation studied at diastolic filling intervals of similar magnitude. The results demonstrate the sensitivity of the magnitude of the gradient to even small alterations in blood flow.
