Hello, the aortic stenosis can differentiate in 3 parts: 1. high grade aortic stenosis with impaired LV-EF (EF < 50%, SVI < 35 ml/m^2 surface area); the transaortic PGmean in cw will underestimate the grade of aortic stenosis; the continuity-formula can help, but the problem is
Hello everybody: In everyday practice (criticalecho) I calculate stroke volume (or surrogate) with LVOT VTI (PW doppler). Practically in all patients it can be measure in A5C view. In some conditions LVOT VTI is really representative of stroke distance? For example: In aortic stenosis
Hi everybody. In TTE what window you use for LV eyeballing assessment of global contractility? Some use apical 4C…others a sum of views… I prefer PSAX at midpapillary level…some authors says that because the predominant contraction pattern of LV is circumferential a
Hey everyone! Does anybody know a dimensionless measurement of aortic insufficiency, exspecially in aortic insufficiency with impaired left ventricular myocardial function? We know a dimensionless index of aortic stenosis (V-LVOT/V-aortic valve) derived from continuity equation that h
Congratulations on the whole team of EchoJournal for this great idea of creating a blog! That will help us to discuss about interesting cases and tell each other something new. Thank you very, very much for invitation to join that blog!
