Left ventricular (LV) systolic global function can be assessed by peak annular systolic velocity S'. Global longitudinal strain rate (GLSR) is relative LV shortening rate, equivalent to normalizing S' for LV length (S' ). It has previously been shown that mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE) and global longitudinal strain (GLS) have similar biological variability, but GLS normalizes for one dimension only, inducing a systematic error, increasing body size dependence. The objective of this study was to compare S' with GLSR in the same way, comparing biological variability and body size dependence.

Name: Echocardiography (Mount Kisco, N.Y.)
The management of severe mitral annular calcification (MAC) with a conservative approach minimizes the risk of atrioventricular groove (AVG) disrupture. However, patients with a history of rheumatic v...
To assess the concordance between transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) and transthoracic echocardiograpic (TTE) measures of right ventricular (RV) function using standard 2-dimensional and Doppler ...
Although it is affected at an early stage, there is a lack of studies investigating right ventricular (RV) function in patients with mitral stenosis (MS). We aimed to investigate the correlation betwe...
Caseous Mitral Annular Calcification (CMAC) is seen in 0.6% of Mitral annular Calcification (MAC) and carries an increased risk for ischemic stroke. The typical location is Posterior Mitral Annular ar...
The aim of the article is to discuss different therapeutic options for patients with severe mitral valve dysfunction because of mitral annular calcification (MAC), including mitral valve repair, conve...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety and feasibility of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve in subjects with mitral annular calcification (MAC) associated with mitral stenosis (MS) ...
Researchers are testing blood or mitral valve tissue to better understand the reasons why Mitral Annular Calcification (MAC) develops in patients with heart disease.
The purpose of this study will be to evaluate the measurement of tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) by emergency physician performed echocardiogram on patients with suspect...
The study is designed to validate the use of speckle-tracking echocardiography to measure tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion as a measurement of right ventricular function during t...
This study is a prospective, single-arm, multi-center feasibility clinical study of the Tendyne Mitral Valve System for the treatment of subjects with symptomatic, severe mitral regurgitat...
Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.
Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.
Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.
Measurement of the index of refraction (the ratio of the velocity of light or other radiation in the first of two media to its velocity in the second as it passes from one into the other).
Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
