A Hemodynamically Oriented Echocardiography-Based Strategy in the Treatment of Congestive Heart Failure

The purpose of this study was to compare two strategies in the treatment of outpatients with heart failure. We hypothesized that an individualized treatment strategy based on the availabil...

Pilot Study Using Echocardiography to Evaluate Patients With Heart Failure and Dyssynchrony Who Have a CRT-D Device

Out of all the patients that receive a CRT-D ( a dual chamber pacemaker with defibrillator ) for cardiac resynchronization therapy there is approximately one-third that do not respond. We ...

Evaluation of Severity of Heart Failure in Children Attending Cardiology Unit, Assiut University Children Hospital

Speckle Tracking Echocardiography Adds Information in Decompensated Heart Failure

The overall objective of the study is to determine whether speckle tracking echocardiography presents additional prognostic value to the routine assessment (clinical and echocardiographic)...

Acoustic Cardiographic Assessment of Heart Function in Comparison to Doppler-echocardiography

In this study, the investigators sought to determine whether an acoustic cardiographic assessment of heart function is equivalent to Doppler-echocardiography in patients who are treated wi...

A clinical application of preload stress echocardiography for predicting future hemodynamic worsening in patients with early-stage heart failure.

To improve the prognosis of patients with heart failure, risk stratification in their early stage is important. We assessed whether the change in transmitral flow (TMF) velocity pattern during preload...

Acute myocarditis with thrombus near left ventricular outflow tract.

A young woman presented with fulminant heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed severe left ventricular dysfunction with a mass adjacent to the basal anterior wall, near the left ventric...

The Value of Right Ventricular Dysfunction and Right Ventricular-Pulmonary Artery Coupling in Chronic Heart Failure: The Role of Echocardiography.

In this review article we discuss the clinical and prognostic value of echocardiographic evaluation methods of the right ventricular function and right ventricular - pulmonary artery coupling, advanta...

Natriuretic Peptide and Clinical Evaluation in the Diagnosis of Heart Failure Hemodynamic Profile: Comparison with Tissue Doppler Echocardiography.

Physical examination and B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) have been used to estimate hemodynamics and tailor therapy of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) patients. However, correlation between ...

An East-West comparison of self-care barriers in heart failure.

Barriers in heart failure self-care contribute to heart failure hospitalizations, but geographic differences have not been well-studied. We aimed to compare self-care barriers in heart failure patient...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.

Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
