Usefulness of Doppler echocardiography in cardiac pacing: assessment of mitral regurgitation, peak aortic flow velocity and atrial capture.

Abstract

Doppler echocardiographic studies were performed in 14 patients with dual chamber pacemakers. Transmitral flow studies (12 patients) revealed absence of mitral regurgitation (MR) or no change in MR severity in 6, new development or increased MR during VVI and/or short or long AV interval lengths compared to more normal AV intervals (150-160 ms) in 5, and… (More)
