As with contractility, regional ventricular compliance can vary substantially not only between ventricles but also within each ventricle (53, 57).
Because ventricular compliance is measured by the rate of diastolic filling, which typically occurs within the first 300-450 ms of diastole, more frequent images during this time period are required to quantitate effective RV compliance.
The low ventricular compliance elevates left ventricular end-diastolic pressures, promoting increased pulmonary vascular pressures and pulmonary edema.
