abstract

  • Reduced ESS, LV volume, and chamber function during initial upright tilt are associated with a subsequent positive tilt response in patients with unexplained syncope. These data suggest that if paradoxic activation of LV mechanoreceptors has a role in mediating neurally mediated syncope, it is not triggered by LV hypercontractility or increased systolic wall stress during the initial period of upright tilt.
