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 ...

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....
