OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether global peak systolic strain (PSS) and peak systolic strain rate (PSSR) derived from velocity vector imaging (VVI) allow early recognition of regional and global right ventricular (RV) dysfunction and the impact of this on left ventricular (LV) function in patients with pulmonary hypertension (PHT). BACKGROUND: RV function is an important determinant of prognosis in patients with heart failure, pulmonary hypertension, heart transplant, and congenital heart diseases....

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) provides valuable information in the evaluation of intra- and extracardiac masses. There is no report demonstrating its usefulness in identifying esophageal mass lesions. This is because generally it is contraindicated in patients with esophageal diseases. However, endoscopic ultrasound is used in the evaluation of gastrointestinal pathology. We report a case of an esophageal tumor detected by TEE and the value of contrast echocardiography in further defini...
