Aim The present study was designed to determine the reliability of the analysis of the time difference between onset of mitral inflow and onset of early diastolic mitral annulus velocity and mean systolic strain index, and comparing them with E/E' in the detection of increased left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) in patients with coronary artery disease.
