OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective study was to investigate the agreement in findings between ECG-gated CT and transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in patients with aortic prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE). METHODS Twenty-seven consecutive patients with PVE underwent 64-slice ECG-gated CT and TEE and the results were compared. Imaging was(More)

Background Increased wall thickness in the aortic root has been suggested as an early sign of prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE). However, there are no previous studies on the aortic wall thickness after aortic valve replacement (AVR) or in patients with PVE. Purpose To identify a clinically useful cutoff value for aortic wall thickness to detect PVE.(More)
Objective The aim of the study was to assess the reliability of using left ventricular stroke volume (LVSV), right ven-tricular stroke volume (RVSV), aortic forward flow (AFF) and pulmonary forward flow (PFF) in the evaluation of valvular regurgitation by studying the extent of agreement between the different parameters in healthy subjects with only trivial(More)
Two-dimensional echocardiography and real-time 3-D echocardiography have been reported to underestimate human left ventricular volumes significantly compared with cardiovascular magnetic resonance. We investigated the ability of 2-D echocardiography, real-time 3-D echocardiography and cardiovascular magnetic resonance to delineate dimensions of increasing(More)
A radiologic follow-up of 30 shoulders in 29 patients operated upon according to the Bristow procedure is presented. Four projections of the shoulder were found necessary for adequate radiographic evaluation of the surgical results, a.p., lateral, oblique lateral and modified axial views. The two latter projections are appropriate for evaluation of the bony(More)
