AIMS Right ventricular (RV) function has important prognostic and therapeutic implications. Assessment of RV function using echocardiography is challenging. The aim of this study was to evaluate a new parameter of RV function, right ventricular outflow tract systolic excursion (RVOT_SE). METHODS AND RESULTS RVOT_SE was measured using M-Mode(More)
AIMS Accurate measurement of left ventricular outflow tract diameter (LVOTd) is essential for reliable estimation of aortic valve area (AVA) using the continuity equation. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) can accurately delineate the LVOT. The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy and reproducibility of LVOTd measurement using transthoracic(More)
BACKGROUND Measurement of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) area for estimation of aortic valve area (AVA) using two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and the continuity equation assumes a round LVOT. The aim of this study was to compare measurements of LVOT area and AVA using 2D and three-dimensional (3D) TTE and cardiac computed(More)
AIM The energy loss coefficient (ELCo) has been suggested as a more accurate indicator of aortic stenosis (AS) severity as compared to transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) aortic valve area (AVA). There are little data regarding the optimal location for aortic area (Aa) measurement needed for ELCo calculation and the agreement of ELCo with direct anatomical(More)
