protodiastolic

protodiastolic

 [pro″to-di″ah-stol´ik]
pertaining to early diastole, i.e., immediately following the second heart sound.

pro·to·di·a·stol·ic

(prō'tō-dī'ă-stol'ik), This word is ambiguous, referring to both the beginning of physiologic diastole (before aortic valve closure) and the beginning of auscultatory diastole (after aortic valve closure). S3 gallop is therefore preferred to protodiastolic gallop.
Early diastolic, relating to the beginning of cardiac diastole.

18) Other important predictors of mortality in DCM patients include advanced age, protodiastolic gallop, failure of the myopathic ventricle to respond to inotropic stimulation, ventricular arrhythmias, prolonged ECG QRS duration, reduced left ventricular function, and late gadolinium enhancement on cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging.
The sound often is referred to as a protodiastolic gallop or ventricular gallop.
We categorized patients as having ventricular systolic dysfunction if they had an ejection fraction (EF) [less than or equal to]45% and diastolic dysfunction in the presence of one of the following patterns (15,16): (a) abnormal relaxation [peak protodiastolic transmitral velocity (E)/peak late diastolic transmitral velocity (A) <1 and deceleration time of the mural E wave (EDT) >140 ms in patients less than 55 years of age, or E/A <0.
