Two-dimensional echocardiography [1, 2] has become a useful method for the evaluation of cardiac performance in terms of volume calculation and wall motion abnormalities. For a more detailed assessment of left ventricular (LV) performance, the simultaneous recording of two-dimensional (2D) echocardiogram and LV pressure is necessary for the calculation of special parameters, such as wall stress.
