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 ......

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 ......

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......

ORIGINAL ARTICLE | Teaching Limited Compression Ultrasound to General Practitioners Reduces Referrals of Suspected DVT to a Hospital: a Retrospective Cross-Sectional Study

The authors concluded that teaching LCUS protocol to GPs substantially reduced referrals to the hospital due to a suspected DVT. Importantly, it did not seem to result in an increasing number of pulmonary embolisms......

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. ......
