CLINICAL INVESTIGATIONS • Left Ventricular Global Longitudinal Strain in Patients with Moderate Aortic Stenosis

Recent data shows poor long-term survival in patients with moderate aortic stenosis, challenging traditional definitions of AS severity and timing of intervention in these patients. The presence of moderate AS in patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF; ...

Right Ventricular Postsystolic Strain Curve Morphology before and after Vasodilator Treatment in Idiopathic Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

The authors discussed the current guidelines for diagnostic workup of pulmonary hypertension, which include right heart catheterization to establish diagnosis, a transthoracic echocardiography to rule out left heart disease, a ventilation/perfusion lung scan to exclude chronic thromboembolic pulmona...

ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY AND PULMONARY HYPERTENSION • Echocardiographic Biventricular Coupling Index to Predict Precapillary Pulmonary Hypertension

Right heart catheterization (RHC) remains the gold standard in the diagnostic workup. However, transthoracic echocardiography is currently part of the screening process and is increasingly used in the longitudinal follow-up of patients with PH. Estimated systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP) is ...

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 ......

CLINICAL FOCUS REVIEW • Point-of-care Ultrasound in Cardiac Arrest

Point-of-care ultrasound – an established reliable bedside diagnostic modality for the differentiation of shock – is increasingly used during the management of cardiac arrest. Various resuscitation guidelines advocate for the role of point-of-care ultrasound in cardiac arrest ......

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......
