BACKGROUND: The different effects of total body weight (TBW), fat-free mass (FFM), and fat mass (FM) on left ventricular (LV) geometry and function are complex. We investigated the associations of changes over time in TBW, FM, and FFM with changes in LV geometry and function. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed data from 1189 subjects (694 women), aged 44 to 86 years, from the baseline and the 5-year follow-up examination of the population-based SHIP (Study of Health in Pomerania)...

Pulmonary hypertension (pH) is a frequent and severe phenomenon in heartworm disease (Dirofilaria immitis). There is a lack of studies assessing the evolution of the proliferative endarteritis and pH caused by D. immitis after the death of the parasites, so this study evaluated the influence that the elimination of the worms exerts over the pulmonary pressure and therefore evolution of the endarteritis, through the evaluation of the Right Pulmonary Artery Distensibility (RPAD) Index and other echocardiographic measurements in 2D mode, M-mode and Doppler echocardiography in 34 dogs naturally infected by D...

The American College of Cardiology, Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, and American Association for Thoracic Surgery, along with key specialty and subspecialty societies, have completed a 2-part revision of the appropriate use criteria (AUC) for coronary revascularization. In prior coronary revascularization AUC documents, indications for revascularization in acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and stable ischemic heart disease were combined into 1 document. To address the expanding clinical indications for coronary revascularization, and in an effort to align the subject matter with the most current American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines, the new AUC for coronary artery revascularization were separated into 2 documents addressing ACS and stable ischemic heart disease individually...

BACKGROUND: The role of echocardiography in the risk stratification of acute heart failure (HF) is unknown. Some small studies and retrospective analyses have found little change in echocardiographic variables during admission for acute HF and some echocardiographic parameters were not found to be associated with outcomes. It is unknown which echocardiographic variables will predict outcomes in sub-Saharan African patients admitted with acute HF. Using echocardiograms, this study aimed to determine the predictors of death and re-admissions within 60 days and deaths up to 180 days in patients with acute heart failure...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), using different echocardiographic parameters, varies widely in the literature. The highest prevalence of LV diastolic dysfunction was detected using the mitral inflow indexes that are commonly altered in these patients due to the associated tachycardia, reduced preload, and ventricular septal shift. In this study, we aimed at evaluating the impact of the used echocardiographic method of assessment on the prevalence of LV diastolic dysfunction in patients with COPD and normal LV systolic function...

A unique and highly versatile technique, stress echocardiography (SE) is increasingly recognized for its utility in the evaluation of non-ischaemic heart disease. SE allows for simultaneous assessment of myocardial function and haemodynamics under physiological or pharmacological conditions. Due to its diagnostic and prognostic value, SE has become widely implemented to assess various conditions other than ischaemic heart disease. It has thus become essential to establish guidance for its applications and performance in the area of non-ischaemic heart disease...

Reliable methods for measuring the thoracic aorta are critical for determining treatment strategies in aneurysmal disease. Z-scores are a pragmatic alternative to raw diameter sizes commonly used in adult medicine. They are particularly valuable in the pediatric population, who undergo rapid changes in physical development. The advantage of the Z-score is its inclusion of body surface area (BSA) in determining whether an aorta is within normal size limits. Therefore, Z-scores allow us to determine whether true pathology exists, which can be challenging in growing children...

The ability of echocardiography (echo)/Doppler to predict elevated left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure (EDP) specifically among patients with pulmonary hypertension is not well defined. This was a retrospective analysis of 161 patients referred to a specialized pulmonary hypertension clinic. A model based on an American Society of Echocardiography (ASE)/European Association of Echocardiography (EAE) joint statement was evaluated, and a new model was developed using univariate linear regression and multivariable logistic regression for potentially better prediction of elevated LVEDP...

OBJECTIVES: In patients with a small aortic annulus, aortic valve replacement (AVR) is frequently associated with high residual pressure gradients. Supra-annular pericardial aortic prostheses are gaining popularity due to the increased effective orifice areas (EOA) and resulting lower gradients. This study reports the clinical and echocardiographic results following implantation of the new supra-annular pericardial aortic prosthesis Dokimos Plus (Labcor, Belo Horizonte, Brazil). METHODS: Between October 2013 and July 2015, 137 patients (41% women, mean age: 74 years) underwent supra-annular AVR with or without concomitant procedures using the Dokimos Plus prosthesis in our department...

AIMS: Our goal was to identify the prevalence of aortic dilation in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the most prevalent (0.2%) heritable, genetic cardiovascular disease. Aortic dilation also represents a spectrum of familial inheritance. However, data regarding the prevalence of aortic dilation in HCM patients is lacking. METHODS AND RESULTS: This is an observational retrospective study of all patients referred to our HCM centre. Aortic dilation was defined based on recent American Society of Echocardiography and European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging published guidelines...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to observe the relationship between left atrial (LA) strain and left ventricular diastolic function and determine whether LA strain could be used to detect diastolic dysfunction (DD) and classify its degree when present. BACKGROUND: The assessment of diastolic function is complex and multiparametric because most conventional parameters do not follow the progression of DD. Strain imaging is an emerging index of LA function, with recent data demonstrating that LA strain is diminished in diastolic heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Amyloidosis is a disease caused by deposits of insoluble fibrils in extracellular spaces. The most common type of familial amyloidosis is mediated by mutation of transthyretin, especially Val30Met. Symptoms and ejection fraction decrease may occur in cardiac amyloidosis only in case of poor prognosis. Myocardial strain detected by two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography can indicate changes in myocardial function at early stages of the disease. OBJECTIVE: To determine the accuracy of left ventricular longitudinal strain by two-dimensional speckle tracking echocardiography in patients with familial amyloidosis caused by Val30Met transthyretin mutation...

Radiation-induced heart disease (RIHD) is a recognized late sequela of chest radiotherapy for conditions such as breast cancer and lymphoma and can involve any cardiac structure. Consensus guidelines from the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging and the American Society of Echocardiography stress the importance of regular screening for the cardiac effects of radiotherapy. However, a gulf remains between these guidelines and clinical practice.

This study sought to gain insights into the magnitude of error resulting in echocardiographic interpretations in Indian subjects by using western data as the reference. Standard transthoracic echocardiographic examination was performed in 100 healthy volunteers (mean age 34.0±8.8 years, 59% males). Compared with the reference values published by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), our subjects had much smaller left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic dimension, end-systolic dimension, and end-diastolic volume (only 58%, 61%, and 61% of the subjects were having values within the ASE-defined normal ranges)...
