Infective endocarditis (IE) is an infectious disease that affects the endothelium of the large intrathoracic vessels, heart valves, and intra-cardiac foreign body material. A 20-year-old woman was admitted to the cardiology department with complaints of fever and palpitations. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed a bicuspid aortic valve, aortic root enlargement, and aortic coarctation. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed a bicuspid aortic valve, but there was no vegetation. Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus was identified on a blood culture...

Background Prevalence of undetected heart failure in older individuals is high in the community, with patients being at increased risk of morbidity and mortality due to the chronic and progressive nature of this complex syndrome. An essential, yet currently unavailable, strategy to pre-select candidates eligible for echocardiography to confirm or exclude heart failure would identify patients earlier, enable targeted interventions and prevent disease progression. The aim of this study was therefore to develop and validate such a model that can be implemented clinically...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: In interstitial lung disease (ILD), pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a major adverse prognostic determinant. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is the most widely used tool when screening for PH, although discordance between TTE and right heart catheter (RHC) measured pulmonary haemodynamics is increasingly recognized. We evaluated the predictive utility of the updated European Society of Cardiology/European Respiratory Society (ESC/ERS) TTE screening recommendations against RHC testing in a large, well-characterized ILD cohort...

Simulation is used in many aspects of medical training but less so for echocardiography instruction in paediatric cardiology. We report our experience with the introduction of simulator-based echocardiography training at Weill Cornell Medicine for paediatric cardiology fellows of the New York-Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia University and Weill Cornell Medicine. Knowledge of CHD and echocardiographic performance improved following simulation-based training. Simulator training in echocardiography can be an effective addition to standard training for paediatric cardiology trainees...

Clinicians have strong opinions about whether they should be provided the clinical history before or after bedside testing. We hypothesized that diagnostic accuracy is improved when a concordant clinical history is provided before a diagnostic test. To investigate whether the timing (before or after) and the consistency (concordant vs discordant) of the clinical history in the setting of focused bedside echocardiography affects clinician diagnostic accuracy and management decisions. Thirty-two cardiology residents were asked to perform a bedside echocardiogram on a Vimedix 3D mannequin...

Adequate assessment of fluid status is an imperative objective in the management of all types of patients in cardiology, intensive care, and especially nephrology. Fluid overload is one of the most common modifiable risk factors directly associated with hypertension, heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy, and eventually, higher morbidity and mortality risk in these categories of patients. Different methods are commonly used to determine fluid status (eg, clinical assessment, natriuretic peptide concentrations, echocardiography, inferior vena cava measurements, or bioimpedance analysis)...

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of heart disease and is the single most important cause of premature death in developed world. Recognizing a patient with ACS is important because the diagnosis triggers both triage and management. cTnI is 100% tissue-specific for the myocardium and it has been shown to be a very sensitive and specific marker for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Ventricular function is the best predictor of death after an acute coronary syndrome. It serves as a marker of myocardial damage, provides information on systolic function as well as diagnosis and prognosis...
