Severe hypotension during reperfusion in liver transplantation is a frequent adverse event. Rare data exist so far about pathophysiology of this phenomenon. The exact role of left ventricu...
First, the aim of the study was to evaluate the usefulness of echocardiographic parameters for detecting pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients with advanced lung disease referred for lun...
The investigators would like to evaluate how well intensive care trainees without previous experience in transesophageal echocardiography are able to perform a transesophageal echocardiogr...
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 main goal is to establish echocardiographic reference values of the right heart for pregnant women, assuming they differ significantly from those of non pregnant women of same age. ...
Severe chest wall deformities are considered a contraindication for lung transplantation. A 38-year-old male with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and severe pectus excavatum with a Haller-Index of 4.3 w...
Accurate assessment of left and right ventricular systolic function plays a fundamental role in the prognostication and management of patients with known or suspected cardiovascular disease. Tradition...
The aim of this study was to investigate whether conventional echocardiographic assessment of right ventricular (RV) systolic function can be improved by the addition of RV strain imaging. Additionall...
Compared with the vast literature concerning the echocardiographic assessment of mitral, or aortic disease, the data concerning the evaluation of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is very limited. In this ...
Neuroendocrine tumors may rarely present after organ transplantation, including cardiac transplant. Treatment is surgical resection with careful perioperative management to optimize blood pressure and...
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)
A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).
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)
Echocardiography applying the Doppler effect, with velocity detection combined with range discrimination. Short bursts of ultrasound are transmitted at regular intervals and the echoes are demodulated as they return.
