BACKGROUND Assessment of the left atrium and atrial appendage (LAA) for thrombus by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) may be suboptimal due to difficult imaging windows and ultrasound artifacts. The present study analyzed the benefit of using ultrasound enhancing agents (UEAs) with TEE to improve diagnostic accuracy and image quality. METHODS A systematic review of studies published through December 2020 was performed, and included investigations comparing the number of cases deemed indeter...

AIMS Cylinder mitral valve construct (cMVC) is new technique for replacing the mitral valve compared to more traditional mitral valve replacement (MVR) procedures. Goal of this study was to describe echocardiographic changes over time in patients undergoing a cMVC. Secondary goal was to compare echocardiographic changes in patients that underwent a cMVC to a group of patients that underwent a MVR. METHODS Retrospective analysis of patients undergoing a cMVC was performed. Demographics, discharge...
Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) can occur due to many etiologies, including primary valve disease, left heart disease, annular dilatation in atrial fibrillation, or pulmonary hypertension (PH). Functional TR is caused by tricuspid annular dilatation in the setting of right ventricular remodeling. The right ventricle (RV) ischemia is an overlooked cause of functional TR which tends to diminish with an improvement in right heart functions. We present the case of a patient in whom functional TR signif...

BACKGROUND Despite early attempts to salvage myocardium-at-risk with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), changes in myocardial wall stress (MWS) leads to ventricular dilatation and dysfunction after acute ST-elevation myocardial infraction (STEMI). Whether this is transient or leads to long-term adverse outcomes major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) is not known. We studied the association between MWS and MACE in patients after a successful PCI for acute STEMI. OBJECTIVES To study the...

AIMS To investigate the left ventricular response to exercise in young adults with hypertension, and identify whether this response can be predicted from changes in left atrial function at rest. METHODS A total of 127 adults aged 18-40 years who completed clinical blood pressure assessment and echocardiography phenotyping at rest and during cardiopulmonary exercise testing, were included. Measurements were compared between participants with suboptimal blood pressure ≥120/80mm Hg (n = 68) and opt...

PURPOSE: To determine the effect of SARS-CoV-2 infection on the fetal pulmonary system using the acceleration time (AT), ejection time (ET), and acceleration/ejection time ratio (PATET) of the fetal main pulmonary artery Doppler waveform. METHODS: We prospectively studied pregnant women attending our hospital with confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection by RT-PCR test and an age-matched control group who admitted for routine prenatal care. An ultrasound examination that included measurements of the AT, E...

Pericarditis is a rare but debilitating complication of cytarabine therapy. While echocardiography can aid with the diagnosis, cardiac MRI has superior accuracy in establishing the diagnosis. In this case, we describe a 65-year-old patient receiving cytarabine as part of induction chemotherapy for acute myeloid leukemia who developed acute pericarditis. Her cardiac MRI revealed pericardial edema on T2-weighted STIR imaging and pericardial late gadolinium enhancement which confirmed the diagnosis...

Cardiac tamponade is a challenging diagnosis in the unstable patient requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. We present a case of cardiac tamponade secondary to hemorrhagic pericardial effusion that developed in the setting of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Specifically, we aim to discuss the pertinent diagnostic challenges in confirming this diagnosis.

BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and clinical value of real time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT-3DE) for assessing ventricular systolic dysfunction and dyssynchrony in children with an functional single right ventricle (FSRV) having undergone the Fontan procedure. METHODS Twenty-five children with an FSRV and 25 healthy children were enrolled in our study. RV volume analysis was performed compared with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the reference standard in F...
