OBJECTIVES We aimed to validate a new flow convergence (FC) method that eliminated the need to locate the regurgitant orifice and that could be performed semiautomatedly. BACKGROUND Complex and time-consuming features of previously validated color Doppler methods for determining mitral regurgitant volume (MRV) have prevented their widespread clinical use. METHODS Thirty-nine different hemodynamic conditions in 12 sheep with surgically created flail leaflets inducing chronic mitral… CONTINUE READING
