abstract

  • In the presence of normal blood pressure and normal weight, the relations between left ventricular wall stress and both chamber and myocardial function are weakly but significantly influenced by age. Left ventricular chamber function is markedly influenced by wall stress, while this influence is reduced for left ventricular wall mechanics.
