Objectives: This study examined the prevalence of left ventricular (LV) long axis dysfunction (LAD, septal annulus pulsed-wave (PW) tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) early diastolic velocity (<= 8 cm/s) in patients with "corrected'' aortic coarctation and its relationship to patient demographics and aortic elastic properties.
