This technique can be performed to assess peak velocity across a valve or regurgitant
fraction using "through plane" phase contrast cine imaging.
Advance the hydrophilic guidewire first if the catheter is hindered by the regurgitant
The RVSP was obtained by measuring the tricuspid regurgitant
jet velocity via a pulsed Doppler study of the tricuspid valve.
Multiplanar cardiac MRI plays an important role in the SOV aneurysm assessment due to its lack of ionizing radiation, ability to quantify ventricular functions and aortic regurgitant
fraction, better temporal resolution, and assessment of wall motion abnormalities.
Conclusion: Following myocardial infarction, baseline mitral regurgitant
severity is associated with deterioration of LV function and increased mortality.
But the association is weak or absent with priapism, stroke and silent cerebral infarction, systemic blood pressure, and tricuspid regurgitant
The most common lesions seen in RHD in this study were of regurgitant
type predominantly involving MV followed by tricuspid and AVs.
BAVs have more aortic root dilatation due to higher stroke volumes.
In a systematic manner, we assessed the mitral annulus, leaflet thickness and mobility, commissural and chordal fusion, the presence and location of calcific nodules, areas of prolapse and billowing, the direction of the regurgitant
jet, thickness and length of chordae tendineae and MR grade.
The tricuspid regurgitant
jet has been the most commonly used method.
They were placed on rice for 12-16h before their regurgitant
The technique can also be utilized to correct stenosed or regurgitant
bio-prosthetic valves known as transcathether aortic valve-in-valve ( VIV ) implantation.
