Example text

EF is thus far from being an ideal parameter to assess contractility. EF depends on afterload as well as on preload and heart volume or mass [402, 425, 454, 455]. e. MR), EF will overestimate the systolic function, missing myocardial dysfunction [457, 458], • in concentric LV-H, EF measurement signals normal systolic function, although substantial dysfunction may be present [459]. Normal values EF > 55% [452, 453, 460–466]; an EF > 40% is considered reasonable [460– 468]. Despite its shortcomings, Braunwald [442] and Gillebert [469] state that EF is the best parameter to describe overall contractility in comparison to all others currently in use.

Stevenson established in 1986 that volume unloading in patients with severe congestive heart failure and high filling pressures showed clear beneficial results, with an improvement in clinical short and long term outcome [73]. Moore explored the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and established our current therapeutic approach [26]. In patients with congestive HF, and thus secondary pulmonary hypertension, direct diastolic ventricular interaction plays a substantial role in the LV-dysfunction responsible for the reduced LV-SV.

V Ees Ees <1 mm Hg/ml is found in dilated and failing hearts [472], in case of hypertrophy there will be a significant increase – up to 4 mm Hg/ml [473]. It has to be stressed that CI is not an index of contractility, but rather a measure of cardiovascular flow: CI is affected by contractility, vascular stiffness and resistance, intravascular volume and filling pressures [132]. Furthermore, there is no normal CO/CI, since metabolic demands can vary widely [119]. c) Inotropic medications Medications able to increase the myocardial contractility are called inotropes.
