Determination of the mechanical properties of the myocardium is crucial for cardiac diagnosis. Cardiac strain and strain rate imaging may enable such quantification. To further develop these methodologies, an experimental setup allowing the recording of ultrasonic deformation data in a reproducible manner is necessary. Such setup with biventricular(More)
This report presents a patient with complex congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) and concomitant ventricular septal defect (VSD), who developed symptomatic heart failure further aggravated after dual-chamber pacemaker implantation. The initial disqualification from surgery based on high vascular pulmonary resistance was(More)
Wadą biologicznych zastawek jest ich ograniczona wytrzymałość. W ciągu kilku lat od zabiegu chirurgicznego dochodzi do zwłóknienia i zwapnienia, a w konsekwencji – do istotnej wady bioprotezy. Opisujemy przypadek pacjentki z dużym ryzykiem przeprowadzenia klasycznej operacji, u której wykonano zabieg przezskórnej walwuloplastyki balonowej biologicznej(More)
OBJECTIVES Papillary muscles (PM) dyssynchrony is among the crucial mechanisms leading to mitral valve regurgitation (MR). The purpose of this study was to find a potential relationship between the level of PM asynchrony and the degree of MR in patients with ischemic and nonischemic cardiomyopathies (ICM and nICM, respectively). DESIGN Twenty-one ICM and(More)
Isolated-congenital mitral regurgitation is infrequently seen in adults. In its mechanism, the entire mitral apparatus or different components separately can play a role [Gallet B. Use of echocardiography in mitral regurgitation for the assessment of its mechanism and aetiology for the morphological analysis of the mitral valve. Ann Cardiol Angeiol(More)
