Persistent cardiac dysfunction on echocardiography in African American women with severe preeclampsia.

Summary of "Persistent cardiac dysfunction on echocardiography in African American women with severe preeclampsia."

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and preeclampsia both disproportionally affect African American women. Evidence continues to grow linking a history of preeclampsia to future CVD. Therefore, we sought to determine whether abnormalities in cardiac function, as determined by echocardiography, could be identified at the time of preeclampsia diagnosis in African American women, and if they persist into the early postpartum period.

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)

The pressure within a CARDIAC VENTRICLE. Ventricular pressure waveforms can be measured in the beating heart by catheterization or estimated using imaging techniques (e.g., DOPPLER ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY). The information is useful in evaluating the function of the MYOCARDIUM; CARDIAC VALVES; and PERICARDIUM, particularly with simultaneous measurement of other (e.g., aortic or atrial) pressures.

Women who are physically and mentally abused over an extended period, usually by a husband or other dominant male figure. Characteristics of the battered woman syndrome are helplessness, constant fear, and a perceived inability to escape. (From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 3d ed)

Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.

Dynamic three-dimensional echocardiography using the added dimension of time to impart the cinematic perception of motion. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
