BACKGROUND AND AIM: In this study, we aimed to evaluate myocardial functions in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). We also aimed to investigate the relationship between B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels and myocardial performance index (Tei index) in these patients. METHODS: A total of 38 patients with DM, 34 patients with IGT, and 40 healthy volunteers were recruited to the study. Basal clinical and laboratory findings were recorded...

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in patients with diabetes therefore prompt diagnosis and treatment of high risk groups is essential. Dobutamine stress echocardiography is a safe, cheap and reliable method for coronary artery disease diagnosis and provides important long term prognostic information. The diagnostic accuracy and prognostic power of this technique has been validated by a number of studies on patients with and without diabetes. This article discusses the application, interpretation, and accuracy of stress echocardiography both in the general population and in patients with diabetes...

We present a case of acute endocarditis due to enterococcus faecalis involving partially A2 and completely A3 (Carpentier classification) with destruction of the free margin of the mitral valve. Repair was performed by using glutaraldehyde treated porcine pericardium to replace the defect and neochordae of polytetrafluoroethylene sutured to the free margin of the pericardium to achieve competence. Intraoperative and follow-up echocardiogaphies showed no regurgitation.

The aim of the study was to assess 24-h pulse pressure (PP) and to determine relationships between PP and echocardiographic parameters of left ventricle in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study population included 47 children (mean age: 13.11 yrs) with CKD treated conservatively (n=14), with hemodialysis (HD) (n=13) and automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) (n=20). Retrospectively, antropometrical data, office blood pressure, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) variables and LV parameters in echocardiogaphy were analyzed...

Renovascular hypertension and renal hypertension are two major secondary forms of hypertension due to renal disease. Diagnosis of renovascular hypertension is important because revascularization therapy is an effective treatment for patients with renal artery stenosis. Doppler echocardiogaphy is a useful noninvasive test to detect renal artery stenosis. There are two Doppler echocardiographic methods to detect renal artery stenosis. The first is to measure flow velocity at the stenotic area. Pulse-Doppler and/or continuous Doppler methods are used to measure flow velocity...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the long-term effect of percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty (PBMV) by observing the changes in mitral valve reserve after PBMV and during the long-term follow-up and by exploring the relations of these changes with stress echocardiographic scores. METHODS: Stress echocardiogaphy was performed in patients receiving PBMV for mitral stenosis both after surgery and during the long-term follow-up study, and Wilkins scores of the patients were obtained pre-operatively. Intravenous isoproterenol was administered before test to increase the heart rate to simulate mild, moderate and heavy exercises, and the indices for cardiac function were recorded...
