Non-invasive imaging plays a growing role in the diagnosis and management of ischemic heart disease from its earliest manifestations of endothelial dysfunction to myocardial infarction along the myocardial ischemic cascade. Experts representing the North American Society for Cardiovascular Imaging and the European Society of Cardiac Radiology have worked together to organize the role of non-invasive imaging along the framework of the ischemic cascade. The current status of non-invasive imaging for ischemic heart disease is reviewed along with the role of imaging for guiding surgical planning...

Quantitation of diastolic function centers on the assessment of active and passive ventricular properties, and involves measurement estimates of ventricular relaxation, and chamber and myocardial stiffness. Diastolic dysfunction is a propensity to develop increased left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure. Recently American Society of Echocardiography and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (ASE/EACVI) proposed a new grading system. While the new guidelines are ambiguous and with cutoff points that may misclassify patients as both sicker and healthier than they are...

AIM: Older patients with proximal femoral fractures often undergo preoperative tests due to coexisting morbidities. Our aim was to evaluate these tests and their impact on patient outcome and medical expenses. METHODS: This retrospective study includes data on head computed tomography, carotid ultrasound, echocardiography and pulmonary functional tests calculated according to the type of surgery (osteosynthesis or hip arthroplasty) carried out on 2798 patients. Time-to-surgery, test repeated postoperatively, American Society of Anesthesiology Physical Status score, additional procedures, hospitalization time, 30-day mortality and associated medical expenses were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Adverse maternal outcomes associated with chronic hypertension include accelerated hypertension and resultant target organ damage. One example is long-standing hypertension leading to maternal cardiac dysfunction. Our group has previously identified that features of such injury manifest as cardiac remodeling with left ventricular hypertrophy. Moreover, these features of cardiac remodeling identified in women with chronic hypertension during pregnancy were associated with adverse perinatal outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Abstract presentations of scientific information at meetings are important for broadcasting new information. Publication of these studies should be the final goal, but minimal data exist documenting publication rates, especially for paediatric sub-speciality meetings. The goal of this study was to document the manuscript publication rate for paediatric cardiac echocardiography abstracts and to determine whether there were differences between abstracts that were published versus not published...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an abnormal heart rhythm which may lead to stroke, heart failure, and death. Emergency physicians play a role in diagnosing AF, managing symptoms, and lessening complications from this dysrhythmia. OBJECTIVE: This review evaluates recent literature and addresses ED considerations in the management of AF. DISCUSSION: Emergency physicians should first assess patient clinical stability and evaluate and treat reversible causes...

INTRODUCTION: This study evaluates the agreement between emergency physician (EP) assessment of diastolic dysfunction (DD) by a simplified approach using average peak mitral excursion velocity (e'A ) and an independent cardiologist's diagnosis of DD by estimating left atrial (LA) pressure using American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) guidelines. METHODS: This was a secondary analysis of 48 limited bedside echocardiograms (LBE) performed as a part of a research study of patients presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) with elevated blood pressure but without decompensated heart failure...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of preoperative echocardiography on patient survival, timing of surgery in length of hospital stay in patients who will undergo hip nailing for an intertrochanteric fracture. METHODS: The clinical records of the patients who were admitted to a tertiary university hospital with an intertrochanteric femur fracture were retrospectively analyzed. The age, gender, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) score, days to surgery, total hospital stay, cardiac drug prescription/modification, cardiac intervention and presence of an echocardiography assessment including detailed findings were reviewed...

Background: Positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) at the time of induction increases oxygenation by preventing lung atelectasis. However, PEEP may not prove beneficial in all cases. Factors affecting the action of PEEP have not been elucidated well and remain controversial. Pulmonary vasculature has direct bearing on the action of PEEP as has been proven in the previous studies. Thus, this prospective study was planned to evaluate the action of PEEP on the basis of pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) which is noninvasive and easily measured by transthoracic echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction is suggested to be associated with higher mortality in severe sepsis and septic shock, yet the methods of diagnosis described in the literature are often inconsistent. The recently published 2016 American Society of Echocardiography and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (ASE/EACVI) guidelines offer the opportunity to apply a simple pragmatic diagnostic algorithm for the detection of diastolic dysfunction; however, it has not been tested in this cohort...

Aims: Diastolic dysfunction (DD) is frequent in the general population; however, the assessment of diastolic function remains challenging. We aimed to evaluate the impact of the recent 2016 American Society of Echocardiography (ASE)/European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) recommendations in the prevalence and grades of DD compared with the 2009 guidelines and the Canberra Study Criteria (CSC). Methods and results: Within a population-based cohort, a total of 1000 individuals, aged ≥45 years, were evaluated retrospectively...

DESIGN: Prospective, cohort study. SETTING: A single-center inner-city hospital. PARTICIPANTS: The study comprised adult patients undergoing elective AF ablation with periprocedural TEE over a 3-year period...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to evaluate the intraoperative transesophageal echocardiographic (iTEE) characteristics and Doppler flow profile of aortic Chitra heart valve prosthesis (CHVP) under stable hemodynamic and loading conditions, and to compare and correlate the iTEE data with the postoperative transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) data obtained at 48 hours (TTE1 ) and 3 months (TTE2 ) after the surgery. DESIGN: Prospective, observational study...

BACKGROUND: There is a growing interest in appropriate use criteria (AUC) for cardiovascular imaging referrals in Europe. These criteria, developed by American subspecialty societies, have been in use since 2007 and show a temporal reduction in inappropriate transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) requests. When applied to European centers, inappropriate referral rates as high as 15% have been observed. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of TTE referrals for appropriateness and major abnormality detection was conducted over a two-month period at Cork University Hospital (CUH)...

BACKGROUND: Anthracycline-related heart failure is a leading cause of morbidity in survivors of adult-onset lymphoma. There is a paucity of information on screening for late-occurring preclinical disease, which, in turn, has limited guidelines for early detection and intervention. The objectives of this study were to examine the prevalence and risk of cardiac dysfunction, as measured by echocardiography (abnormal left ventricular systolic/diastolic function or strain), in lymphoma survivors who received treatment with anthracyclines and to evaluate the diagnostic yield of blood biomarkers in the asymptomatic setting...

BACKGROUND: Recent American Society of Echocardiography (ASE)/European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) guidelines for echocardiographic evaluation of left ventricular (LV) diastolic function provide a practical, simplified diagnostic algorithm for estimating LV filling pressure. The aim of this study was to test the accuracy of this algorithm against invasively measured pressures and compare it with the accuracy of the previous 2009 guidelines in the same patient cohort...
