Regardless of the etiology, increases in LVFP and pulmonary congestion are necessary prerequisites to decompensation.
The echo Doppler estimation of LVFP by E/e' and NPs is somewhat correlated with pulmonary tissue water in large populations, but may provide different information in the single patient [29].
Our results support the use of Doppler echocardiographic signs of raised LVFP and LUS with BNP in the follow-up of HF outpatients with reduced or mildly reduced EF.
Despite the recent development of more sophisticated echocardiographic techniques, for example, speckle tracking spectral Doppler [33], echo Doppler markers of raised LVFP are well validated and universally used.
