Two-dimensional speckle strain and dyssynchrony in single right ventricles versus normal right ventricles.
BACKGROUND Patients with single-right ventricle (RV) physiology are at increased risk for myocardial dysfunction and mechanical dyssynchrony. Newer echocardiographic modalities may be better able toExpand

Differences in tissue Doppler imaging between single ventricles after the fontan operation and normal controls.
Tissue Doppler imaging measurements could be used to quantitate ventricular function in patients with systemic single ventricles. The objective of the present study was to measure the tissue dopplerExpand

Echocardiographic assessment of atrial properties in single ventricles vs. normal controls.
INTRODUCTION Atrial function is increasingly being recognized as a significant factor in overall cardiac function in adults. Limited studies evaluating atrial properties exist in the pediatricExpand

COST AND EFFICIENCY ANALYSIS OF THIOPENTAL VERSUS CHLORAL HYDRATE FOR SEDATING CHILDREN DURING ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY
Methods: Retrospective review of all pts age 0-48 months sedated for an echocardiogram over 1 year, 2008-9. Sedation regimen included oral CH 50 or 75 mg/kg, or rectal TH 25 mg/kg. An additional doseExpand
