    Objective: The goal of the present work was to create the closest possible in vitro fluid dynamic environment in which prosthetic mitral valves in the patients’ hearts function, in order to demonstrate whether microbubbles are generated, and if yes, under what conditions and at which...

    To assess the effect of tricuspid annuloplasty (TAP), the authors measured the size of the liver by using echography in the patients undergoing tricuspid annuloplasty. From April 1989 to August 1996,18 patients underwent TAP. The authors measured preoperatively and postoperatively the hepatic...

    Abstract: Cardiac involvement is frequent in patients with blunt chest trauma and multiple injuries. Different cardiac structures can be involved, but isolated aortic valve rupture is rare. We report the case of a man admitted to our hospital with multiple injuries as a result of a car crash....

    We report a case of percutaneous mitral valve repair, using the Mitraclip device, in which we show that application of real-time three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography (3D-TEE) is extremely helpful for the guidance of this procedure. Because of its excellent visualization...

    Mitral regurgitation is a frequent finding in patients with aortic stenosis scheduled for aortic valve replacement. Detection of mitral regurgitation in such patients has important implications, as it can independently affect functional status and prognosis. When mitral regurgitation is moderate...

    Abstract: Thickening of the aortic root and anterior mitral leaflet has been described in patients with aortic valve insufficiency associated with ankylosing spondylitis. We report identical findings made by transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography in three patients with inflammatory,...
