Casthely et al [84] 1997 J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg The effects of myocardial protection on diastolic function after cardiac operations
Bernard F et al [13] 2001 Anesth Analg The significance of diastolic dysfunction perioperatively; Diastolic dysfunction is associated with difficult weaning from CPB.
Vaskelyte J [18] 2001 Eur J Echocardiogr The interesting concept to subdivide patients with severe LV dysfunction into different groups according to diastolic filling pattern abnormality. One of the few articles investigating the relationship between diastolic dysfunction and post-operative mortality. Drawbacks: All patients had low EF < 35%.
