Chasing the reflected wave back into the heart: a new hypothesis while the jury is still out.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Arterial stiffness directly influences cardiac function and is independently associated with cardiovascular risk. However, the influence of the aortic reflected pulse pressure wave on left ventricular function has not been well characterized. The aim of this study was to obtain detailed information on regional ventricular wall motion patterns corresponding to the propagation of the reflected aortic wave on ventricular segments. METHODS: Left ventricular wall motion was investigate...
