Left Ventricular End-Diastolic Pressure Increased


  • Cardiomegaly is present in patients with chronic AR. In acute AR, pulmonary edema is almost universally present. If the AR is due to an aortic dissection, the mediastinum may appear widened.[healio.com]

  • Functionally, the Anrep effect allows the heart to compensate for an increased end-systolic volume present and the decreased stroke volume that occurs when aortic blood pressure increases.[diki.pl]
