Kazuaki Tanabe, Takahiro Sakamoto
Substantial or complete myocardial recovery occurs in many patients with heart failure (HF). HF patients with myocardial recovery or recovered left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF; HFrecEF) are a distinct population of HF patients with different underlying etiologies, comorbidities, response to therapies, and outcomes compared with HF patients with persistent reduced or preserved EF. Improvement in LVEF has been systematically linked to improved quality of life, and lower rehospitalization rates and mortality...

BACKGROUND: Adjuvant trastuzumab improved overall survival and reduced the risk for disease recurrence in women with breast cancers, because of its potential cardiotoxicity, careful monitoring of left ventricular (LV) function during treatment is required. METHODS: This study investigates, whether myocardial strain imaging and level of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) could predict subsequent reduction in LVEF in breast cancer patients received adjuvant trastuzumab...

BACKGROUND: Therapeutic uncertainty is inherent in decisions in patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) and cryptogenic stroke. We aimed to determine clinical implications of PFO identification in transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) after a cryptogenic ischemic stroke. METHODS: Consecutive TEE done between 2011 and 2015 in patients with previous cryptogenic stroke was evaluated. Clinical implications of PFO identification (closure and/or medical therapy) were retrieved from the medical records and discharge summaries...

BACKGROUND: Indoxyl sulfate (IS), a uremic toxin, has been reported to have hypertrophic effects on the heart. Previous studies, however, have shown no association between elevated IS levels and cardiovascular outcomes in hemodialysis patients. We hypothesized that, despite left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, myocardial contractility and ventricular-arterial coupling would remain preserved, and that this would explain the reason for the absence of prognostic impact of IS. METHODS: We evaluated the association of IS with LV structure, contractility, vascular function, and mechanical efficiency (ventricular-arterial coupling and stroke work/pressure volume area) in 154 patients on hemodialysis, using echocardiography-based pressure-volume loop assessment...

#13
Ebraham Alskaf, Attila Kardos
Aortic valve area is one of the main criteria used by echocardiography to determine the degree of valvular aortic stenosis, and it is calculated using the continuity equation which assumes that the flow volume of blood is equal at two points, the aortic valve area and the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT). The main fallacy of this equation is the assumption that the LVOT area which is used to calculate the flow volume at the LVOT level is circular, where it is often an ellipse and sometimes irregular. The aim of this review is to explain the physiology of the continuity equation, the different sources of errors, the added benefits of using three-dimensional imaging modalities to measure LVOT area, the latest recommendations related to valvular aortic stenosis, and to introduce future perspectives...

BACKGROUND: Transesophageal Doppler echocardiography has shown that significant stenosis can be detected based on the presence of aliasing with color Doppler in the stenotic area. The study aimed to assess the detection of angiographically significant coronary stenosis (ASCS) by analyzing the characteristics and velocities of resting coronary artery flow (RCF) using transthoracic coronary Doppler echocardiography (TCDE). METHODS: TCDE was performed before diagnostic coronary angiography (CA)...

Exercise stress testing has been widely undertaken for the diagnosis of heart diseases. The accurate assessment of clinical conditions can be conducted by comparing the findings obtained from the results of stress echocardiography with the changes in the blood/heart rate and electrocardiograms. Numerous overseas studies have reported the utility of stress echocardiography in diagnosing myocardial ischemia; in Japan, the use of this modality for this purpose was included in the national health insurance reimbursable list in 2012...
