Intraoperative echocardiography: interpretation of changes in left ventricular wall thickness.


Quantitative two-dimensional echocardiography (Q2-DE) may be used to detect intraoperative changes in left ventricular (LV) mass (M) and wall thickness (h). Potential causes of change in h include physiological redistribution of myocardium, myocardial edema, reactive hyperemia, and intramyocardial hemorrhage. Changes in h, in the absence of changes in LV… (More)
