Multiplane transesophageal echocardiographic assessment of mitral regurgitation by Doppler color flow mapping of the vena contracta.

Abstract

Assessment of the severity of mitral regurgitation (MR) by Doppler color flow mapping is limited by dependence of jet area on hemodynamic and technical variables. The width of the MR jet at its origin may be less dependent on hemodynamic variables, and thus should more accurately reflect the severity of MR. Doppler color flow mapping was performed in 80… (More)
