To determine if the return of atrial contraction as evidenced by progressive return of the A wave on the Doppler atrial profile could better predict long-term success of cardioversion than other clinical and echocardiographic parameters, 50 patients were studied 4 hours, 24 hours and, if sinus rhythm persisted, up to 180 days after cardioversion.

To assess the incidence and long-term evolution of left-to-right atrial shunting (AS) after the performance of percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty (PMV), venovenous indicator dilution curves and right heart oximetric measurements were obtained in 68 consecutive patients before and after successful PMV. The procedure increased the mitral valve area (p less(More)
