ABSTRACT: We studied the left ventricular diastolic function with Doppler Echocardiography in 61 patients: the first group (A) was conformed by 20 patients with cerebral stroke in evolution (24 to 48 hours) with age between (45 to 63 year old) every one had carotid obstructive lesion shown by angiography. The (B) group had 21 patients with ischemic heart disease and all of them had selective coronary arteriography with atheromatous obstructive lesions (45 to 63 years old); 17 of this patients had previous myocardial infarction. The third group (C) was formed by 20 healthy people between 40 and 62 years of age. We found an increase in the late diastolic peak velocity, in the (A/E) ratio in the early diastolic time; in the early diastolic acceleration and in early diastolic desceleration. The difference between groups (A) and (B) with the (C) was evident (P less than 0.001). We conclude that patients of (A) and (B) groups had reduced left ventricular compliance and the (B) group with evidence of ischemic heart disease show more prominent abnormality.Archivos del Instituto de Cardiología de México 01/1989; 59(5):493-7.
