Left side: a Dilated left ventricle with an end-systolic volume of 380 ml, and an ejection fraction of 4.8% as was measured by the modified Simpson’s method pre-implant. b Pulsed wave Doppler mitral inflow pattern showing advanced diastolic dysfunction (deceleration time (DT) of early filling velocity, 165 ms). Right side: c Dilated left ventricle with reduced end-systolic volume of 288 ml and improved ejection fraction of 26.6% as was measured by the modified Simpson’s method post-implant at 6-month follow-up. d Pulsed wave Doppler mitral inflow pattern showing impaired relaxation.
