  • Clinical application of stress echocardiography for valvular heart disease. [Review]
    J Med Ultrason (2001) 2019Kusunose K
  • Stress echocardiography is widely used to assess several cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic heart disease, valvular heart disease (VHD), heart failure, congenital heart disease, and pulmonary hypertension. In valvular heart disease with asymptomatic severe or symptomatic non-severe status, stress echocardiography plays a central role in the management. As of 2017, the updated American Co…
  • The Added Value of Exercise Stress Echocardiography in Patients With Heart Failure. [Journal Article]
    Am J Cardiol 2019; 123(9):1470-1477Fabiani I, Pugliese NR, … Dini FL
  • Doppler echocardiography can provide reliable and repeatable measures of cardiac index (CI), whereas lung ultrasound (LUS) represents a quantitative approach to assess pulmonary congestion. We tested the hypothesis that simultaneous assessment of CI and LUS during exercise stress echocardiography (ESE) may define heart failure (HF) outpatients with different risk of adverse outcome. Standard tran…
  • Physiological Responses to Exercise in Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients. [Journal Article]
    Med Sci Sports Exerc 2019; 51(5):850-857Bovard JM, DE Souza AM, … Cote AT
  • CONCLUSIONS: When matched for work rate, HTx had similar metabolic responses to controls despite having smaller LV chambers and an attenuated increase in hemodynamic responses. These findings suggest that HTx may increase peripheral O2 extraction as a compensatory mechanism in response to reduced cardiovascular function.
  • Positioning Techniques to Improve the Ultrasound Evaluation of the Elbow. [Journal Article]
    Ultrasound Q 2019; 35(2):136-141Mezian K, Machač S, … Schmitz M
  • We introduce an ergonomic positioning for sonographic scanning of elbow joint where the patient is lying semisupine on the examination bed. This is in contrast with the conventional positioning where the patient is sitting on the edge of the bed or across the table on a chair. Our proposed positioning is more comfortable for both the patient and ultrasound practitioner. It also allows immediate u…
