    A 51-year-old man was found to have left ventricular masses by transthoracic echocardiography, one attached to the posterior wall of the left ventricle and another attached to the anterolateral wall of the left ventricle. He had several events of systemic embolization over the last few weeks....

    Background: As hypertrophied myocardium predisposes the patient to decreased tolerance to ischemia and increased reperfusion injury, myocardial protection is of utmost importance in patients undergoing aortic valve replacement (AVR) for severe aortic valve stenosis (AS). Methods: Consecutive 314...

  • Transesophageal Echocardiography in a Case of Dextro- Transposition of Great Arteries with Regressed Left Ventricle. Makhija, Neeti; Singh, Sarvesh Pal; Narula, Jitin; Choudhury, Arin; Kiran, Usha // Journal of Perioperative Echocardiography;Jul-Dec2014, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p71 

    Patients with dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) with an intact ventricular septum (IVS) beyond 21 days of age may develop left ventricular (LV) regression. Perioperative echocardiography-guided assessment of LV for signs of regression is crucial in decision-making for definitive...
