Feasibility of using real time "Live 3D" echocardiography to visualize the stenotic aortic valve.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Aortic stenosis valve area (AS AVA) using the continuity equation (CE AVA) has limitations. Thus anatomic assessment of AS AVA would be useful. METHOD AS AVA was measured using "live three-dimensional (3D)" echocardiography that is a two-dimensional (2D) display of a three-dimensionally acquired 2-3 cm thick pyramidal image. In 52 aortic… (More)
