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 ......

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 ......
