BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Mitral regurgitation (MR) shows different characteristics in mitral valve prolapse (MVP); hence, it is important to assess MR severity accurately in these patients. The study aim was to compare Doppler echocardiographic methods in making such assessment. METHODS: Forty-seven patients with confirmed MVP and at least moderate mitral insufficiency, as established by Doppler echocardiography, were studied. Quantitative Doppler was used as the reference standard method...

OBJECTIVE: Systolic pulmonary venous flow reversal (SPVFR) has been evaluated in mitral regurgitation (MR) primarily by transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE). There is limited study on the value of SPVFR obtained from transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) for the quantification of MR. In this study, determinants of SPVFR and the accuracy of SPVFR obtained with TTE in determining the severity of MR were investigated. METHODS AND RESULTS: Fifty patients with MR in whom reference quantitative Doppler evaluation was carried out formed the study group...
