Sudden cardiac death in a young healthy athlete is a rare but catastrophic event. The American Heart Association preparticipation screening guidelines recommend a focused history and physical without routine imaging or electrocardiogram screening. We hypothesized that a focused echocardiogram can identify structural abnormalities that may lead to sudden cardiac death in athletes, which might otherwise go undetected by history and physical. We retrospectively reviewed the charts of all incomin…

Patients with newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF) and a rapid ventricular response may present with a reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). We compared long-term outcomes of these patients with those with preserved LVEF. This retrospective cohort study included 385 consecutive adults with newly diagnosed AF with rapid ventricular response, presenting to a single medical center from January 2006 to August 2014. Patients with a history of coronary artery disease or known cardi…

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a prevalent hereditary disease associated with increased atherosclerosis and calcific aortic valve disease (CAVD). However, in both FH and non-FH individuals, the role of hypercholesterolemia in the development of CAVD is poorly understood. This study used Rapacz FH (RFH) swine, an established model of human FH, to investigate the role of hypercholesterolemia alone in the initiation and progression of CAVD. The valves of RFH swine have not previously been…

Guidelines for assessing diastolic function by echocardiography are continually being updated. Our ability to use available guidelines effectively has not been completely investigated. Six trained echocardiographers were asked to interpret 105 echocardiograms using current American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) algorithms for interpretation of diastolic grade and estimation of left atrial (LA) pressure. Diastolic grade was categorized as normal, mild, moderate, or severe dysfunction. The …

The HeartMate II is the most frequently used left ventricular assist device (LVAD) in patients with end-stage heart failure. There is a paucity of data regarding its longitudinal cardiac effects, particularly that on diastole.This retrospective study was an evaluation of echocardiograms preoperatively and at 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively in patients with a HeartMate II. Measurements included left ventricle (LV) dimensions, ejection fraction (EF), right ventricle (RV) size and function, …

Elastographic imaging of heart tissue may be used to provide strain images by mapping strain magnitude to brightness and strain sign to hue and thus provide improved clinical indication of compression and distension of heart muscle. An areal cursor may be used to obtain quantitative measurements of strain at predetermined periods in the heart cycle. Multiple area measurements of strain may be combined to provide a quantitative index of cardiac health.
