Improved Doppler echocardiographic assessment of the left atrial appendage by peripheral vein injection of sonicated albumin microbubbles.

Abstract

We evaluated the usefulness of peripherally injected sonicated albumin microbubbles in transesophageal echo-Doppler cardiographic assessment of the left atrial appendage in 19 patients (age 61 +/- 19 [range 21 to 86] years; 12 [63%] women). Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography was performed before and after intravenous injection of sonicated albumin… (More)
