We hypothesized that AR as a volume overload lesion would prolong LVET (8-10) and possibly reduce IMP.
We demonstrated that AR+Normal EF patients had a prolonged LVET and IRT resulting in an IMP that did not differ from the normal group.
Although the estimate of systolic function in their study (fractional shortening) was similar to the estimate of systolic function (ejection fraction) in the AR+Reduced EF group, our values for ICT and IRT were shorter with the LVET being longer.
Previous data in the literature has noted that the LVET is prolonged in AR, which may have the effect of reducing IMP (8-10).
The LVET increased with volume loading (5,20) in both human and experimental studies.
