Study objective To determine whether standard clinical and transthoracic echocardiographic criteria considered to be suggestive of the presence of endocarditis-associated paravalvular abscess are predictive of which patients would benefit from reliable but invasive transesophageal echocardiographic investigations for abscess. Design Retrospective chart review. Setting A 630-bed university hospital. Patients Forty-eight patients with 51 episodes of definite endocarditis and 24 paravalvular absces...

Implantable cardioverter defibrillators are being used with increasing frequency for the management of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. In order to determine whether the titanium mesh of the defibrillator patch causes ultrasonographic acoustical interference, 30 patients underwent prospective serial echocardiographic examination. In addition, studies were reviewed to determine whether the defibrillator patches could be visualized with standard two-dimensional echocardiography. In no pat...

BACKGROUNDSecondary involvement of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa and the anterior mitral leaflet (subaortic structures) can occur in patients with aortic valve endocarditis. The secondary involvement of these structures occurs as a result of direct extension of the infection from the aortic valve or as a result of an infected aortic regurgitant jet striking the ventricular surfaces of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa and the anterior mitral leaflet. The abscess of mitral-aortic ...

Abstract To assess the value and limitations of single-plane transesophageal echocardiography in the evaluation of prosthetic aortic valve function, 89 patients (69 mechanical and 20 bioprosthetic aortic valves) were studied by combined transthoracic and transesophageal 2-dimensional and color flow Doppler echocardiography. In the assessment of aortic regurgitation, the transthoracic and transe sophageal echocardiographic findings were concordant in 71 of 89 patients (80%). In 8 patients, the de...

Para-aortic ring abscess and resulting fistulous communication between adjacent structures frequently occur in prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis but are rarely diagnosed preoperatively. We report a patient who had an abscess involving the aortic-mitral intervalvular fibrosa that eroded into the interatrial septum, causing an interatrial communication with a left-to-right shunt. The abscess was detected by transthoracic echocardiography, but the fistula was only seen by the subsequent transeso...
