NORMAL VALUES FOR RIGHT VENTRICULAR MEASUREMENTS • Two-Dimensional Echocardiographic Right Ventricular Size and Systolic Function Measurements Stratified by Sex, Age, and Ethnicity: Results of the World Alliance of Societies of Echocardiography Study

Despite the inherent challenges associated with imaging of the anterior, highly asymmetric, crescent-shaped chamber, the right ventricular (RV) size and function is most frequently imaged with echocardiography. A variety of measurements are made to characterize RV chamber size and function ......

Ventricular Septal Defect Area by Three-Dimensional Assessment of Shunt Severity in Children

Ventricular septal defect (VSD) size is a determinant of shunt severity in children. When compared to three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography (3DE) and surgical measures, Two-dimensional (2D) echocardiography (2DE) underestimates VSD size ......

MULTIMODALITY IMAGING DOPPLER DILEMMAS • Pacemaker Lead–Induced Tricuspid Valve Stenosis?

Tricuspid valve (TV) stenosis (TS) is a rare condition and occurs in about 2.4% of cases of primary TV disease. Most commonly, it is caused from rheumatic disease. Endocarditis and large right atrial tumor are other causes of TS ......

VALVULAR HEART DISEASE • Natural History of Moderate Aortic Stenosis with Preserved and Low Ejection Fraction

The authors of this study sought to evaluate if moderate AS is associated with increased mortality in comparison with propensity-matched patients, stratified by ejection fraction (EF), and transaortic gradient, which potentially may justify AV replacement by TAVR ......

BRIEF RESEARCH COMMUNICATION • The Impact of Norepinephrine on Myocardial Perfusion in Critical Illness

Myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) is a well-validated method of qualitative and quantitative assessment of myocardial perfusion in the non-critically ill. Therefore, the authors' goal was to investigate whether MCE can be used to assess norepinephrine-related perfusion abnormalities ......
