Evaluation of the hemodynamic performance of St. Jude mitral prostheses: a pilot study by dobutamine-stress Doppler echocardiography.

Abstract

In contrast to the widespread use of dobutamine stress Doppler echocardiography in the hemodynamic evaluation of the prosthetic valves in aortic position, it has been rarely, if ever, used for assessment of these valves in mitral position. Therefore, this pilot study was done to assess the hemodynamic performance of St. Jude prosthetic mitral valves… (More)
