Aims: Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) and mitral valve prolapse (MVP) are common but the prevalence and significance of coexistent conditions are unknown. This study investigated the prevalence, phenotypic expression, and clinical significance of coexistent MVP-BAV. Methods and results: Retrospective comparison of MVP-BAV and MVP-tricuspid aortic valve (TAV) prevalence including de novo echocardiographic analysis of all MVP-BAV patients between 2005 and 2015 was performed...

Aims: Genetic, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) can be caused by a large variety of mutations. Mutation carriers are often asymptomatic until DCM is well established, presenting with heart failure, arrhythmias, or sudden cardiac death. Preventive strategies can only be applied if DCM can be detected early. Echocardiographic, left ventricular (LV) global longitudinal strain (GLS) is a promising tool for early diagnosis, i.e. before a decrease in LV ejection fraction (EF) has occurred. We, therefore, investigated the role of LV GLS as an early disease marker in genetic DCM...

Aims: Echocardiography is suggested in the diagnostic work-up of patients with Type 2 diabetes (T2D). We investigated which echocardiographic parameters that best predicted cardiovascular disease (CVD) and whether this was persistent in both genders in a large cohort of outpatients with T2D. Methods and results: We performed comprehensive echocardiography in 933 patients with T2D followed at specialized out-patients clinics in Copenhagen, Denmark. Follow-up was performed using national registries and included admission with future CVD events and non-CVD death as competing risk...

Aims: The aim of this study was to describe incidence and determinants of left ventricular reverse remodelling (r-LVR) at 6 months follow-up after MitraClip implantation in patients with secondary severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Methods and results: Forty-five patients, undergoing MitralClip implantation with low ejection fraction and high surgical risk were enrolled in this study. Three of them died before the scheduled 6 months follow-up period and one patient had cardiac surgery due to MitraClip detachment...

Aims: Recurrent chest pain after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) poses a diagnostic challenge. We hypothesized that combining anatomy of bypass grafts and native coronary arteries with ischaemia detection by hybrid imaging could be used to gain valuable and complementary information in patients with recurrent symptoms after CABG. Methods and results: We analysed 36 consecutive patients (67 ± 9 years, 81% male) who had undergone hybrid imaging using coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) and [15O]H2O positron emission tomography (PET) myocardial perfusion imaging due to recurrent symptoms after CABG...

Aims: The peak transmitral velocity/peak mitral annular velocity (E/e') ratio has been used as a left ventricular (LV) filling pressure (LVFP) correlate. However, the E/e' and its changes with haemodynamic alterations have not always correlated with changes in LVFP's. We hypothesized that indexing E/e' to a measure of LV filling volume may enhance the correlation with LVFP and LVFP changes. Methods and results: We summarized previously obtained haemodynamic and Doppler echo data in 137 dogs with coronary microsphere embolization induced-chronic LV dysfunction prior to and following haemodynamic induced alterations in LVFP's...

A fifth of patients with primary degenerative mitral regurgitation continue to present with de novo ventricular dysfunction following surgery and higher rates of heart failure, morbidity, and mortality. This raises questions as to why the left ventricle (LV) might fail to recover and has led to support for better LV characterization; cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) may play a role in this regard, pending further research and outcome data. CMR has widely acknowledged advantages, particularly in repeatability of measurements of volume and ejection fraction, yet recent guidelines relegate its use to cases where there is discordant information or poor-quality imaging from echocardiography because of the lack of data regarding the CMR-based ejection fraction threshold for surgery and CMR-based outcome data...

Aims: Myocardial fibrosis as detected by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is a powerful prognostic marker in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and may be progressive. The precise mechanisms underlying fibrosis progression are unclear. We sought to assess the extent of LGE progression in HCM and explore potential causal mechanisms and clinical implications. Methods and results: Seventy-two HCM patients had two CMR (CMR1-CMR2) at an interval of 5...

Recent technological advances in echocardiography, with progressive miniaturization of ultrasound machines, have led to the development of handheld ultrasound devices (HUD). These devices, no larger than some mobile phones, can be used to perform partial, focused exams as an extension to the physical examination. The European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) acknowledges that the dissemination of appropriate HUD use is inevitable and desirable, because of its potential impact on patient management...
