Unicuspid aortic valve (UAV) is a rare congenital anomaly of aorta associated with a faster progress of valvular dysfunction, aortic dilatation and with necessity for more frequent controls and precise evaluation Asymptomatic 35 year old man had abnormal systolic diastolic murmur on aortic valve during routine examination. Initial diagnostic with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) supposed bicuspid aortic valve, while three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3D TEE) and multidetector computed tomography defined unicuspid, unicomissural aortic valve with moderate aortic stenosis and regurgitation. This case report confirmed that 3D TEE gives us opportunity for early, improved and precise diagnosis of UAV.

Name: Echocardiography (Mount Kisco, N.Y.)
Aortic valve calcification (AVC) quantification is computed from multidetector computed tomography (MDCT). The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that three-dimensional (3D) transthoracic ec...
Echocardiography is regarded as the gold standard for diagnosis of bicuspid aortic valve (BAV), yet diagnostic accuracy has been evaluated previously only in single-center studies. We systematically e...
Unicuspid and bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) are congenital cardiac anomalies associated with valvular dysfunction and aortopathies occurring at a young age.
Cardiac imaging is the cornerstone of the pretranscatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) assessment. Multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) is considered the conventional imaging modality. Howeve...
This preliminary study will compare the effectiveness of two-dimensional and three-dimensional echocardiographic measurements of wall thickness and left ventricular mass in patients with A...
The progress in surgery of the aortic root and the evolution of transcatheter aortic valve replacement as an alternative to surgical treatment in selected patients have refocused the need ...
The purpose of this study is to perform ground-based research to study what happens to the heart muscle in space. People who have problems with their aortic valve have an increase in the ...
Many cardiologists are convinced that early surgery in asymptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) saves lives. However there is currently no direct evidence for this and most recommendations from t...
In patients with asymptomatic aortic stenosis (AS), the prognostic value of reduced left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction is well known. Consequently, there is class I indication for sur...
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
Dynamic three-dimensional echocardiography using the added dimension of time to impart the cinematic perception of motion. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
Congenital vascular malformation in which the AORTA arch and its branches encircle the TRACHEA and ESOPHAGUS. Signs and symptoms include DYSPNEA; RESPIRATORY SOUNDS, especially with eating, DYSPHAGIA, persistent cough, and GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX or may be asymptomatic. Two most common types are double aortic arch and right aortic arch. It may be associated with other anomalies (e.g., DIGEORGE SYNDROME).
Small clusters of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the ARCH OF THE AORTA; the PULMONARY ARTERIES; and the coronary arteries. The aortic bodies sense PH; CARBON DIOXIDE; and oxygen concentrations in the BLOOD and participate in the control of RESPIRATION. The aortic bodies should not be confused with the PARA-AORTIC BODIES in the abdomen (which are sometimes also called aortic bodies).
Measurement of intracardiac blood flow using an M-mode and/or two-dimensional (2-D) echocardiogram while simultaneously recording the spectrum of the audible Doppler signal (e.g., velocity, direction, amplitude, intensity, timing) reflected from the moving column of red blood cells.
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
