ORIGINAL RESEARCH | Emergency Medicine Advanced Ultrasound Service: A New Paradigm

The use of point-of-care US (POCUS) has become well established in emergency medicine (EM), largely due to social and economic pressures to provide rapid assessment and transit through the emergency department (ED) and the desire for improved diagnostic and procedural ability in acute care settings....

REVIEW | Effect of Intermittent High–Mechanical Index Impulses on Left Ventricular Strain

Endocardial border resolution can be improved by using Intermittent high–mechanical index (MI) impulses during ultrasound enhancing agent (UEA) infusion. In animal models, these high-MI impulses have been shown to also release adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for sustained periods of time......

MITRALVALVE DISEASE | Mitral Valve Prolapse Patients with Less than Moderate Mitral Regurgitation Exhibit Early Cardiac Chamber Remodeling

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP), which has a prevalence of 2.4% in the general population, is the most common etiology of mitral regurgitation (MR). The natural history of MVP is diverse, ranging from slow progression of mild MR degrees, to rapid progression to severe MR requiring cardiac surgery.......

STATE OF THE ART REVIEW | Usefulness of Stress Echocardiography in the Management of Patients Treated with Anticancer Drugs

Stress echocardiography has a pivotal role in a timely diagnosis of CAD. The atherosclerotic process can be accelerated by both chemotherapy and chest irradiation in patients with cancer, even several years after treatment completion.......

CASE REPORT | Native Mitral Valve Infective Endocarditis From Flossing: A Case Report and Emergency Department Management

Infective endocarditis (IE) is often classified into left (mitral and aortic), right (tricuspid and pulmonic), as well as by the nature of the affected valve (native or prosthetic). 40% of these cases affect the mitral valve. ......

STATE OF THE ART REVIEW | Agitated Saline Contrast Echocardiography in the Identification of Intra- and Extracardiac Shunts: Connecting the Dots

Cardiologists throughout the world often perform and interpret echocardiographic studies using agitated saline as a contrast agent. Also known as ‘‘bubble studies’’, these studies can provide valuable information......

ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY IN CHILDREN | Longitudinal Variation in Presence and Severity of Cardiac Valve Regurgitation in Healthy Children

In both normal adults and pediatric populations, trivial or mild valvular regurgitation (VR) is a common finding. However, in a specific individual, such finding may raise the concern whether this is a physiologic or pathologic finding......

BRIEF RESEARCH COMMUNICATION – COVID 19 | Mitral Annular Plane Systolic Excursion: An Early Marker of Mortality in Severe COVID-19

Respiratory failure is one of the major causes of death in hospitalized patients with COVID-19. Right ventricular (RV) dilation and reduced RV longitudinal strain have been shown to be markers of poor outcome in this disease......

Aortic Awareness Case Review: Esophageal Perforation with Transesophageal Echocardiography in an Elderly Patient

While uncommon, transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) can lead to esophageal perforation which, in rare occasion, can even lead to death. The authors present a case of iatrogenic esophageal perforation from TEE......
