Non-Doppler two-dimensional strain imaging by echocardiography--from technical considerations to clinical applications.
TLDR
Non-Doppler, 2-dimensional, 2D strain imaging is a new echocardiographic technique for obtaining strain and strain rate measurements that analyzes motion by tracking speckles in the ultrasonic image in two dimensions, enabling rapid and accurate assessment of global and segmental myocardial function.
American Society of Echocardiography clinical recommendations for multimodality cardiovascular imaging of patients with pericardial disease: endorsed by the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic
TLDR
Allan L. Klein, MD, FASE, Chair, Suhny Abbara,MD, Deborah A. Agler, RCT, RDCS, Fase, Christopher P. Appleton, MD; Carmela D. Tan,MD; and Richard D.White, MD are the authors of this book.
Atrial septal aneurysm in adult patients. A multicenter study using transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography.
TLDR
In this retrospective study, patients with ASA (especially with shunts) showed a high frequency of previous clinical events compatible with cardiogenic embolism; in a significant subgroup of patients, ASA appears to be the only source of emblism, as judged by TEE.
American Society of Echocardiography Consensus Statement on the Clinical Applications of Ultrasonic Contrast Agents in Echocardiography.
TLDR
This activity aims to demonstrate an increased knowledge of the applications for contrast echocardiography and their impact on cardiac diagnosis, and to assess the common pitfalls in contrast imaging and use stepwise, guideline-based contrast equipment setup and contrast agent administration techniques to optimize image acquisition.
Clinical outcomes in patients undergoing percutaneous closure of periprosthetic paravalvular leaks.
TLDR
Percutaneous closure of symptomatic paravalvular leaks, facilitated by integrated imaging modalities has a high rate of acute and long-term success and appears to be effective in managing symptoms of heart failure and hemolytic anemia.
Surgical left atrial appendage ligation is frequently incomplete: a transesophageal echocardiograhic study.
TLDR
Surgical LAA ligation is frequently incomplete, and the similar incidence of incomplete ligation detected immediately postoperative and at various times thereafter suggest that this results from an intraoperative phenomenon rather than from gradual dehiscence of sutures over years.
Aortic Atherosclerotic Disease and Stroke
TLDR
In this series, 40% of cerebral infarctions in the Stroke Databank of the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke (NINCDS) were thought to be cryptogenic; however, because no source of embolus could be identified, the authors kept these strokes in the undetermined cause category.
Review of surgical prosthetic paravalvular leaks: diagnosis and catheter-based closure.
TLDR
The aim of this review is to examine transcatheter therapy of PVLs including the principles, outcomes, and procedural-related complications.
Protruding aortic atheromas predict stroke in elderly patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass: experience with intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography.
TLDR
A history of peripheral or cerebrovascular disease, presence of aortic calcification, cardiac risk factors, age and duration of cardiopulmonary bypass did not predict stroke, and patients with protruding atheromas with mobile components were at highest risk.
