Abstract

Eighteen selected diabetic patients, without symptoms or signs of cardiac diseases and a control group of 15 normal subjects, age and sex matched, underwent polycardiographic and echocardiographic study, with the aim to evaluate their systolic and diastolic function of the left ventricle. PEP, LVET and PEP/LVET ratio were determined on the polycardiographic tracings. In eleven diabetic patients these data were also determined after amyl nitrite inhalation. Left ventricular diastolic dimension (DD), LV systolic dimension (DS), ejection fraction (EF), VCF, fractional shortening (FS), mitral opening delay (MOD) and the relaxation speed of the left ventricular posterior wall were determined on the echocardiographic tracings. All these data underwent statistical analysis by Student test, and some significant differences were found between diabetic patients and normal subjects. The mean value of PEP was augmented (diabetic patients: 100±18 msec; normal subjects: 88±9 msec; p 0.05), while the mean value of LVET was diminished (diabetic patients: 275±22 msec; normal subjects: 300±23 msec; p
