  • Values are means (SD). DT, deceleration time; k, E-wave derived stiffness; ΔPavg/ΔVavg, catheterization-determined average chamber stiffness; ΔPE/ΔVE, catheterization-determined early rapid filling stiffness; EDV, end-diastolic volume. P values were determined by ANOVA.

  • *P = 0.93.

  • P = 0.011.

  • P = 0.0015.
