Subject: Evaluacion de la funcion diastolica
Date: Wed, 13 Oct 1999 06:44:15 -0400

Hace unos anos ha aparecido nuevos metodos para evaluar la funcion
diastolica como lo son la onda de propagacion por modo M color, y el
Doppler tisular, el cual el Dr.Rodriguez publica un trabajo en el
congreso Virtual; el Dr.Mario Garcia tambien publico trabajo
referente a ello;  sin embargo; no esta tan claro su utilidad, 
posiblemente esta limitado a ciertos casos como la difenciacion
entre miocardiopatia restrictriva y pericarditis constrictiva; quisiera
saber la experiencia y utilidad de estos metodos y sus valores
normal o lo util es el tipo de espectro Doppler que produce.
Saludos
Dr.Eric Vidal

Some years ago, new methods have appeared, to evaluate diastolic function, such as propagation
wave by M color mode, and tissue Doppler, which Dr. Rodriguez published in a lecture in the
Virtual Congress, Dr. Mario Garcia also published a work on this. However, its usefulness is
not clear, and is possibly limited to some cases as differentiation between restrictive
cardiomyopathy and constrictive pericarditis. I would like to know experiences, and usefulness
of these methods, and their values, normal or what is useful is the kind or Doppler spectrum
that produces.
Greetings,

Dr.Eric Vidal
