CLINICAL INVESTIGATIONS • Passive Leg Raise Stress Echocardiography in Severe Paradoxical Low-Flow, Low-Gradient Aortic Stenosis

Management of aortic stenosis (AS) – the most common valvular heart disease in Europe and North America – is done by catheter intervention or surgery; in severe symptomatic AS, valve replacement is the treatment of choice. Diagnosis of severe AS, which is defined as an aortic valve area (AVA) ...

THE HEMODYNAMIC CORNER • Aortic Stenosis Severity: Rhythm Makes a Difference

The assessment of aortic valve stenosis (AS) severity based on Doppler velocity and pressure gradient is flow dependent. Both velocity and pressure gradient increase with elevated transaortic flows and decrease with reduction in flow rates for a given aortic valve orifice area. In this case repo...

RESEARCH • Intermediate-Risk Pulmonary Embolism: Echocardiography Predictors of Clinical Deterioration

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) can lead to clinical deterioration due to its effect on the right ventricle (RV). Since there are no consistent definitions or assessments of abnormal RV (abnlRV) there is limited data on association between abnlRV and clinical outcomes and prognostic performance......
