AIMS The purpose of this study was: (i) to record dynamic changes in the area of atrial septal defects (ASD) during a cardiac cycle, and (ii) to investigate factors which influence ASD dynamics. Implementation of new software modifications allowed the frame rate to be doubled, as compared to usual techniques. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty patients were(More)
In this report we describe a 39-year-old patient who had left-sided hemiparesis. In search of a source of embolism, we performed transthoracic echocardiography, which did not show any abnormalities. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed a small tumor of the posterior mitral leaflet. Three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography was subsequently(More)
PURPOSE Quantification of the left ventricular (LV) volume by three-dimensional echocardiography is accurate but time-consuming. To shorten the time required, we sought to determine the minimum number of image planes necessary to measure LV volume reliably. METHODS We analyzed transesophageal three-dimensional echocardiographic LV data obtained by the(More)
