ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION: Early Point-Of-Care Ultrasound Assessment for Medical Patients Reduces Time to Appropriate Treatment: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has proven to be an effective tool that narrows the differential diagnosis among patients presenting with chest pain and dyspnea, which can help achieve the correct diagnosis faster......

IMAGES IN CARDIOVASCULAR ULTRASOUND • A Rare Case of Left Ventricular Noncompaction in LEOPARD Syndrome

Transthoracic echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging revealed left ventricular noncompaction* and skin biopsy had no evidence of malignancies. Finally, other disease with hyper-pigmented skin lesions including Addison’s disease, hemochromatosis, and hyperthyroidism, were excluded....

ORIGINAL INVESTIGATION • Internal Jugular Vein Cannulation Using a 3-Dimensional Ultrasound Probe in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Surgery: Comparison Between Biplane View and Short-Axis View

Compared with the traditional anatomic landmark technique, 3-dimensional ultrasound guided IJV cannulation improves patient outcomes by increasing success rates and reducing complications. Both techniques have advantages and disadvantages. ......

ORIGINAL INVESTIGATION • Left Atrial Expansion Index for Noninvasive Estimation of Pulmonary Capillary Wedge Pressure: A Cardiac Catheterization Validation Study

RHC, an invasive and potentially risky procedure, is the gold standard technique for accurate hemodynamic assessment and PCWP measurement. However, it is reserved to only highly selected cardiac subgroups of patients. However, it is reserved to only highly selected cardiac subgroups of patients ......

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 ......
