PMID:  16703236     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The rationale and clinical use of Doppler echocardiography for the assessment of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction is described with focus on recent developments. Noninvasive measurement of elevated left atrial pressure can be performed with transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography in daily practice and thus, can be used for clinical management in patients with heart failure.
