  • Values are means (SD); n = 80 subjects (57 men and 23 women); 19 subjects showed evidence of systolic dysfunction [ejection fraction (EF)<55%], and 35 subjects showed evidence of diastolic dysfunction [left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) ≥19 mmHg]. EDV, end-diastolic volume; DT, deceleration time.
