BACKGROUND: Strain imaging is a robust clinical tool in cardiac surveillance of patients with breast cancer. However, image quality and therefore ability to accurately measure strain are often limited in this patient group because of tissue expanders, implants, and/or flap reconstruction. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the feasibility of measuring left ventricular longitudinal strain (LVLS) in the echocardiographic subcostal view in female patients with breast cancer. METHODS: A total of 110 studies from 68 female patients with breast cancer were included...

BACKGROUND: The optimal number of heartbeats required for representing left heart chamber function in patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib) has not been extensively studied. METHODS: To determine the optimal number, we performed an automated quantification analysis of three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) data sets in 93 patients with AFib for whom 10-20 consecutive one-beat full-volume 3DE data sets were acquired twice. We measured left ventricular end-diastolic volume (LVEDV), left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), and maximal left atrial volume (LAVmax) in each heartbeat; each parameter was averaged using a serial number of heartbeats randomly selected, and these values were compared with the averaged value obtained from the entire set of heartbeats...

BACKGROUND: The authors used cluster analysis of data from cardiovascular domains associated with exercise intolerance to help define prognostic phenotypes of patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). METHODS: Resting and postexercise echocardiography was performed in 177 patients with HFpEF and 51 asymptomatic control subjects sharing a common clinical profile. Patterns of features that determine exercise capacity were sought from automated hierarchical clustering of left ventricular (LV) diastolic and systolic function, left atrial function, right ventricular function, ventricular-arterial coupling, chronotropic reserve and myocardial fibrosis...

INTRODUCTION: In irregular heart rhythms, echocardiographic calculation of aortic effective orifice area (EOA) requires averaging measurements from multiple cardiac cycles. Whether a single cycle length method can be used to calculate aortic EOA in aortic stenosis with nonsinus rhythms is not known. METHODS: Transthoracic echocardiograms of 100 patients with aortic stenosis and either atrial fibrillation (AF) or frequent ectopy (FE) were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Right ventricular (RV) function plays a pivotal prognostic role in multiple cardiac diseases. Echocardiography guidelines recommend that RV quantification be performed in the RV-focused view, which is theoretically more reproducible than the four-chamber (4Ch) view. However, differences between views in RV size and function measurements have never been systematically studied. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to compare (1) RV size and function parameters obtained from the RV-focused and 4Ch views and (2) test-retest variability between these two views...

BACKGROUND: Tissue Doppler velocities are impaired after heart transplantation and further diminished in acute rejection. METHODS: Left ventricular relaxation index (LVRI) was calculated as the sum of E' of the left ventricular lateral, septal and posterior walls divided by left ventricular posterior wall (LVPW) thinning (LVRI = E' lateral + E' septal + E' posterior/[systolic LVPW - diastolic LVPW/systolic LVPW]). On the basis of a prior study, LVRI > 0...

BACKGROUND: Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and left atrial (LA) enlargement may develop functional, normal leaflet motion mitral regurgitation (MR) without left ventricular (LV) remodeling. Mitral annular dynamics and LV mechanics are important for preserving normal mitral valve function. The aim of this study was to assess the annular and LV dynamics in patients with AF and functional MR. METHODS: Twenty-one patients with AF with moderate or more MR (AFMR+ group), 46 matched patients with AF with no or mild MR (AFMR- group), and 19 normal patients were retrospectively studied...

BACKGROUND: Prognosis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is related to cardiac dysfunction. Speckle-tracking echocardiographic (STE) imaging is emerging as a noninvasive functional biomarker to consider in the early detection of DMD-related cardiomyopathy. However, STE analysis has not been assessed in a prospectively controlled study, especially in presymptomatic children with DMD, and no study has used STE analysis in all three displacements (longitudinal, radial, and circumferential) and for both ventricles...

BACKGROUND: Medical claim data offer the possibility to improve patient care and mitigate liability. Although published analyses exist in cardiology, no information is available for transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). In this study, the authors reviewed medical claims involving TEE to identify potential risk management concerns so that these lessons could be used to improve the safety and quality of transesophageal echocardiographic practice. METHODS: The authors reviewed anonymized clinical and claims data from all closed claims from 2008 to 2013 for a single national physician liability insurer...

BACKGROUND: Doppler echocardiography, including the ratio of transmitral E to tissue Doppler e' velocities (E/e'), is widely used to estimate mean left atrial pressure (mLAP). This method, however, has not been validated in patients with acute coronary syndromes. METHODS: Fifty-seven patients with acute coronary syndromes who underwent left heart catheterization and transthoracic echocardiography within 8 hours of each other were retrospectively analyzed. Forty-two of the patients (74%) were men, with a mean age of 65 ± 11 years...

Analysis of intracardiac flows has gained increasing interest in the last years. This analysis has become possible due to the development of technologies for noninvasive cardiovascular imaging, which allow visualization and quantitation of intracardiac flow dynamics. Several studies have shown that abnormalities in cardiac function are related to changes in intracardiac vortical flows. Thus, analysis of cardiac vortex has been used for better understanding of the pathophysiology in many heart diseases and to test initial clinical hypotheses...

BACKGROUND: Patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) have altered physiologic responses to exercise. The aim of this study was to investigate exercise capacity and ventricular function during exercise in adolescent patients with AN. METHODS: Sixty-six adolescent female patients with AN and 21 adolescent female control subjects who exercised to volitional fatigue on a semisupine ergometer, using an incremental step protocol of 20 W every 3 min, were retrospectively studied...

BACKGROUND: The pressure recovery-adjusted aortic valve area (AVA), called the energy loss coefficient (ELCo), is theoretically a more accurate parameter for evaluating aortic stenosis (AS) severity. The aim of this study was to compare the prognostic value of ELCo with that of conventional AVA. METHODS: Indexed AVA (iAVA) was measured using Doppler echocardiography in 301 asymptomatic Japanese patients with AS and preserved left ventricular ejection fractions. Sinotubular junction diameter was also measured, and the indexed ELCo (iELCo) was calculated...
