Pre‐pouch ileitis: a disease of the ileum in ulcerative colitis after restorative proctocolectomy
Objective  Ileal inflammation in ulcerative colitis can occur as backwash ileitis or prestomal ileitis. After restorative proctocolectomy (RPC), ileal inflammation may be present in the pouchExpand

Image orientation for three-dimensional echocardiography of congenital heart disease
To date there has been little discussion about image orientation for three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography when applied to congenital heart lesions. Anatomic relations cannot be assumed inExpand

Assessment of right ventricular volumes in hypoplastic left heart syndrome by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography: comparison with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.
BACKGROUND Accurate assessment of right ventricular (RV) volumes and function is important in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). We prospectively sought to determine theExpand
