Postoperative echocardiography. (a) Short axis views of LVs in diastole and systole. The distended LV model developed significantly larger LVs than those in the unloaded LV model (, NS: not significant). (b) Apical long axis view of a LV in the distended LV model. An AR jet was detected in a 2D echocardiography with color Doppler.
