Role of transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography in predicting embolic events in patients with active infective endocarditis involving native cardiac valves.
Some studies describe an increased risk for emboli in infective endocarditis patients with large (>10 mm) and mobile vegetations. Other studies fail to demonstrate the above relation. Most studiesExpand

Simulation of intraoperative visualization of cardiac structures and study of dynamic surgical anatomy with real-time three-dimensional echocardiography.
Most prior efforts of 3-dimensional (3-D) reconstruction of echocardiographic images have focused on quantitation of ventricular size and function. The resulting images have been displayed in theExpand

Clinical, echocardiographic, and hemodynamic evidence of cardiac tamponade caused by large pleural effusions.
Large pleural effusions are typically associated with dyspnea and potential respiratory compromise. Experimental evidence suggests that with large effusions, increased intrapleural pressure may beExpand
