Variability of the Doppler gradient in pulmonary valve stenosis before and after balloon dilatation.


The variability of the valve gradient measured by Doppler in pulmonary stenosis was compared with the variability of the gradient measured at catheterisation in 42 infants and children undergoing catheterisation with a view to balloon dilatation of the pulmonary valve. The maximum value measured by Doppler when the patient was unsedated was significantly… (More)
