Report of the American Society of Echocardiography Committee on Nomenclature and Standards in Two-dimensional Echocardiography.
The Committee recommends that when the transducer is placed in the suprasternal notch that it be referred to as in the suprasternal location. When the transducer is located near the midline of theExpand

Percutaneous balloon dilatation of the mitral valve: an analysis of echocardiographic variables related to outcome and the mechanism of dilatation.
Twenty two patients (four men, 18 women, mean age 56 years, range 21 to 88 years) with a history of rheumatic mitral stenosis were studied by cross sectional echocardiography before and after balloonExpand

Atrial enlargement as a consequence of atrial fibrillation. A prospective echocardiographic study.
To test the hypothesis that atrial enlargement can develop as a consequence of atrial fibrillation, left and right atrial dimensions were measured echocardiographically at two different time pointsExpand

Three-dimensional echocardiographic reconstruction of the mitral valve, with implications for the diagnosis of mitral valve prolapse.
Mitral valve prolapse has been diagnosed by two-dimensional echocardiographic criteria with surprising frequency in the general population, even when preselected normal subjects are examined. In mostExpand

Pulmonary artery acceleration time provides an accurate estimate of systolic pulmonary arterial pressure during transthoracic echocardiography.
BACKGROUND Transthoracic echocardiographic estimates of peak systolic pulmonary artery pressure are conventionally calculated from the maximal velocity of the tricuspid regurgitation (TR) jet.Expand

Identification of high-risk and low-risk subgroups of patients with mitral-valve prolapse.
Mitral-valve prolapse is a common cardiac valvular disorder with a wide range of severity and diverse clinical outcomes. The lack of a standard definition of mitral-valve prolapse may explain theExpand

Clinical Correlates and Reference Intervals for Pulmonary Artery Systolic Pressure Among Echocardiographically Normal Subjects
Background—Data in normal human subjects on the factors affecting pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) are limited. We determined the correlates of and established a reference range for PASP asExpand

Preload dependence of Doppler-derived indexes of left ventricular diastolic function in humans.
To determine the effect of filling pressure on the pattern of left ventricular filling in humans, the mitral flow velocity profile was measured by pulsed wave Doppler echocardiography during rightExpand

Analysis of shape and motion of the mitral annulus in subjects with and without cardiomyopathy by echocardiographic 3-dimensional reconstruction.
The shape and dynamics of the mitral annulus of 10 patients without heart disease (controls), 3 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, and 5 patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy andExpand
