Summary

Pulmonary vascular disease and cardiac performance in extreme preterm infants: A prospective cross-sectional study

Description

The principal investigator hypothesize that premature newborns have disturbed cardiac performance and increased pulmonary pressures during neonatal life and at different pediatric ages.

The principal investigator also hypothesize that premature newborns with poor cardiac performance and/or pulmonary hypertension have higher morbidities and poorer neuro-developmental outcomes.

The principal investigator also hypothesize that premature newborns with poor cardiac performance and/or pulmonary hypertension have higher morbidities and poorer neuro-developmental outcomes and that novel echocardiography techniques will detect anomalies not uncovered by conventional imaging, and that early echocardiography may identify those with later pulmonary hypertension.

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)

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 the superposition of flow information as colors on a gray scale in a real-time image.

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.
