BACKGROUND: The left atrial appendage (LAA) flow velocity is an important factor for thrombus formation in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NV-AF). Recently, the relation of plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels and thromboembolism has been reported in patients with NV-AF. The aim of this study was to determine whether the plasma BNP is predictive of lower LAA flow velocity in patients with NV-AF and normal left ventricular (LV) systolic function. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 184 patients with NV-AF (132 men; 65 ± 12 years, LV ejection fraction; 65 ± 10%) underwent transthoracic echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), and measurement of plasma BNP...

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)...

REVIEW
Otto A Smiseth
Left ventricular (LV) diastolic function can be evaluated by echocardiographic indices of LV relaxation/restoring forces, diastolic compliance, and filling pressure. By using a combination of indices, diastolic function can be graded and LV filling pressure estimated with high feasibility and good accuracy. Evaluation of diastolic function is of particular importance in patients with unexplained exertional dyspnea or other symptoms or signs of heart failure which cannot be attributed to impaired LV systolic function and to assess filling pressure in patients with heart failure and reduced LV ejection fraction...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to investigate associations between right ventricular (RV) function and left ventricular (LV) diastolic function in patients with reduced LV ejection fraction (LVEF) and preserved LVEF. METHODS: A total of 139 patients who had undergone echocardiography were recruited. LV diastolic function was determined as the ratio of mitral inflow E to mitral e' lateral annular velocities (E/e'). RV function was determined as the RV index of myocardial performance (RIMP)...

BACKGROUND: Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) has been used to assess coronary sinus blood flow (CSBF), which reflects total coronary arterial blood flow. Successful angioplasty is expected to improve coronary arterial blood flow. Changes in CSBF after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), as assessed by TTE, have not been systematically evaluated. HYPOTHESIS: TTE can be utilized to reflect increased CSBF after a successful, clinically indicated PCI. METHODS: The study cohort included 31 patients (18 females, 62 ± 11 years old) referred for diagnostic cardiac catheterization for suspected coronary artery disease and possible PCI, when clinically indicated...

BACKGROUND: Mitral annular disjunction is a structural abnormality of the mitral annulus fibrosus and is pathologically defined by a separation between the atrial wall-mitral valve junction and the left ventricular attachment. Mitral annular disjunction can cause hypermobility of the mitral valve apparatus and is often associated with mitral valve prolapse (MVP). The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency and characteristics of mitral annular disjunction in the patients referred to an echocardiography laboratory and to compare these with previously reported pathological data...

Fabry disease resulting from a deficiency of α-galactosidase A leads to the accumulation of globotriaosylceramide in various organs. Because the disease is an X-linked recessive disorder, males tend to develop more symptoms and more severe symptoms than females. There are also some variants of Fabry disease, and cardiac variant (cardiac Fabry disease) has the dysfunctions only in heart. Cardiac manifestations in Fabry disease are initially symmetrical and concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, and later progressive cardiac dysfunction with localized thinning of the basal posterior wall...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a bi-atrial disease yet little attention has been given to right heart function in AF. We propose that the assessment of right atrial (RA) and right ventricular function (RV) using two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography (2D-STE) could be valuable in predicting AF recurrence in patients with paroxysmal AF (PAF). METHODS: Thirty patients with PAF were prospectively recruited from a dedicated AF clinic. Right atrial size, volume, and area and RV dimensions were analyzed along with RA and RV strain derived from 2D-STE at baseline and at 3 and 12 months...

BACKGROUND: Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) is an echocardiography modality that is able to measure left ventricular (LV) characteristics, including rotation, strain and strain rate. Strain measures myocardial fibre contraction and relaxation. This study aims to assess the effect of renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) on functional myocardial parameters, including STE, and to identify potential differences between responders and non-responders. METHODS: The study population consisted of 31 consecutive patients undergoing RDN in the context of treatment for resistant hypertension...
