Recommendations for evaluation of the severity of native valvular regurgitation with two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography.
A report from the American Society of Echocardiography’s Nomenclature and Standards Committee and The Task Force on Valvular Regurgitation, developed in conjunction with the American College ofExpand
Doppler tissue imaging: a noninvasive technique for evaluation of left ventricular relaxation and estimation of filling pressures.
Mitral E velocity, corrected for the influence of relaxation (i.e., the E/Ea ratio), relates well to mean PCWP and may be used to estimate LV filling pressures. Expand

American Society of Echocardiography: recommendations for evaluation of the severity of native valvular regurgitation with two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography
A critical review of echocardiographic and Doppler techniques used in the evaluation of valvular regurgitation in the adult patient is offered, and recommendations for the assessment of severity are provided based on the scientific literature and a consensus of a panel of experts. Expand
EAE/ASE recommendations for image acquisition and display using three-dimensional echocardiography.
The main goal of this document is to provide a practical guide on how to acquire, analyze, and display the various cardiac structures using 3D echocardiography, as well as limitations of the technique. Expand

Desmin mutation responsible for idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.
A novel missense mutation of desmin, Ile451Met, was identified as the genetic cause of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, the first mutation detected in the desmin tail domain, and it suggests that the tail of Desmin plays an important functional role in cardiac tissue. Expand
Tissue Doppler Imaging Consistently Detects Myocardial Abnormalities in Patients With Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Provides a Novel Means for an Early Diagnosis Before and Independently of
Myocardial contraction and relaxation velocities, detected by TD imaging, are reduced in FHCM, including in those without LVH, and TD imaging is an accurate and sensitive method for identifying subjects who are positive for F HCM mutations. Expand
Optimal Noninvasive Assessment of Left Ventricular Filling Pressures: A Comparison of Tissue Doppler Echocardiography and B-Type Natriuretic Peptide in Patients With Pulmonary Artery Catheters
In intensive care unit patients, mitral E/Ea has a better correlation than BNP with PCWP, and in patients without cardiac disease, BNP appears more accurate than E-type natriuretic peptide for PCWP >15 mm Hg, whereas E-Ea appears more specific in this patient population. Expand
