Age-related changes in right ventricular diastolic function
270 patients (129 males) aged 13–83 years without respiratory or cardiovascular diseases have been examined in or- der to evaluate early tricuspid ventricular inﬂow parameters in different age groups. The patients have been surveyed with the echocardiography performed with the color Doppler M-mode assessment of ventricular inﬂow velocity. Early diastolic left and right ventricular inﬂow was typically less in older patients, which is due to the worsening of ventricular diastolic function and this should be taken into account in research studies and clinical practice.
