Independent and additive prognostic value of right ventricular systolic function and pulmonary artery pressure in patients with chronic heart failure.
OBJECTIVES We sought a better understanding of the coupling between right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) and pulmonary artery pressure (PAP), as it might improve the accuracy of the prognosticExpand
Prognostic usefulness of the tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion in patients with congestive heart failure secondary to idiopathic or ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy.
The prognostic value of ultrasound evaluation of right ventricular (RV) performance in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) is still a matter of investigation. We studied 140 consecutiveExpand
Holter Monitoring in AL Amyloidosis: Prognostic Implications
PALLADINI, G., et al.: Holter Monitoring in AL Amyloidosis: Prognostic Implications. The heart is involved in more than one third of patients with primary (AL) amyloidosis at diagnosis and it is byExpand
A New Method for Quantitation of Mitral Regurgitation Based on Color Flow Doppler Imaging of Flow Convergence Proximal to Regurgitant Orifice
BackgroundImaging of the flow convergence region (FCR) proximal to a regurgitant orifice has been shown to provide a method for quantifying the regurgitant flow rate. According to the continuityExpand
A new method for quantification of regurgitant flow rate using color Doppler flow imaging of the flow convergence region proximal to a discrete orifice. An in vitro study.
While color Doppler flow mapping has yielded a quick and relatively sensitive method for visualizing the turbulent jets generated in valvular insufficiency, quantification of the degree of valvularExpand
A new method for estimating left ventricular dP/dt by continuous wave Doppler-echocardiography. Validation studies at cardiac catheterization.
In this study, we explored the use of continuous wave Doppler-echocardiography guided by color Doppler flow-mapping as a method for noninvasively calculating the rate of pressure rise (RPR) in theExpand
Usefulness and limits of transthoracic echocardiography in the evaluation of patients with primary and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the potential usefulness of transthoracic echocardiography in differentiating patients with primary or chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension and to defineExpand
Ventricular septal rupture after myocardial infarction: diagnosis by two-dimensional and pulsed Doppler echocardiography.
Rupture of the ventricular septum in the acute phase of myocardial infarction (MI) requires prompt recognition for correct management. The 2-dimensional and pulsed Doppler echocardiographic findingsExpand
Clinical and therapeutical follow-up of HIV-associated pulmonary hypertension: prospective study of 10 patients
Objective: To determine the clinical course and prognosis of pulmonary hypertension (PH) in HIV-infected patients in comparison with a group of PH patients without HIV infection. The secondaryExpand
