AIMS Fluoroscopic-guided right ventricular (RV) endomyocardial biopsy (EMBx) is the conventional method for obtaining myocardial samples to assess for rejection following heart transplantation. This study was designed to assess the feasibility and accuracy of guiding RV sheath and bioptome tip position using real-time three-dimensional echocardiography(More)
The evolution of echocardiography from 2-Dimensional Transthoracic Echo through to real time 3-Dimensional Transoesophageal Echo has enabled more accurate visualisation and quantification of valvular disorders especially prosthetic mitral valve paravalvular regurgitation. However, validation of accuracy is rarely confirmed by surgical or post-mortem(More)
We present the case of right ventricular thrombus formation associated with a right ventricular infarct secondary to a proximal right coronary artery thrombus, which was not evident on transthoracic echocardiography but detected on both delayed gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging and microsphere contrast echocardiography. The diagnosis of right(More)
Cardiac output (CO) is commonly measured using the thermodilution technique at the time of right heart catheterisation (RHC). However inter-operator variability, and the operator characteristics which may influence that, has not been quantified. Therefore, this study aimed to assess inter-operator variability with the thermodilution technique using a mock(More)

A 55-year-old man suffered a thoracic knife wound during an assault. The wound was sutured by a general practitioner. Five days later, the patient represented to another medical centre with chest pains after travelling on two Australian domestic flights, including one for which airport security required him to undergo screening with a metal detector. Chest(More)
Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) insertions have increased significantly over the last decade. Transdermal patches are increasingly used for drug delivery. Skin burns associated with metal containing transdermal patches have been reported with magnetic resonance imaging and external cardiac defibrillation. However, there are no reports of dermal(More)
