Background: Two-dimensional (2D) echocardiography planimetry, the Doppler pression half-time (PHT), and the continuity equation methods were used to estimate mitral valve area (MVA) in patients with mitral stenosis (MS). Recently, the proximal isovelocity surface area (PISA) method has been shown to be accurate for calculating MVA. The purpose of this study(More)
The authors report the clinical history of a 22-year-old woman, followed for Behçet's disease, who presented a prolonged fever for two months associated with oral and genital ulcerations. There was an inflammatory syndrome, papillary oedema without brain injury. Echocardiography revealed moderate pericardial effusion and voluminous thrombosis of right atria(More)
The standard Doppler indices of transmitral filling are changed by variations in preload, relaxation and left ventricular compliance. Recent work in the literature suggests that the new parameters of diastolic function [mitral flux propagation speed in colour TM. (Vp) and tissue Doppler mitral ring velocities (Ea)] are independent of loading conditions. The(More)
