A normal echo scan was seen in 70 (22.8%) with the mean age of 4.2 [+ or -] 6.3, while trivial abnormalities; minimal pericardial effusions and minimal tricuspid and pulmonary valvular regurgitation
were seen in 27 (8.7%) of them.
Major adverse events included but were not limited to death during or after the procedure because of complications of the procedure, complete heart block requiring pacemaker implantation, thromboembolism, and new-onset valvular regurgitation
requiring surgical repair.
Subjects with MVP have a greater chance to experience mitral regurgitation than those without, even if the valvular regurgitation
is trace or mild (11,32).
He built his reputation on his ischemic heart disease, myocardial function, and hibernation research, as well as his development of echocardiographic techniques to evaluate valvular dynamics and measure valvular regurgitation
However, endocarditis, which leads to valvular regurgitation
, is observed much more frequently in clinical practice.
is more common than stenosis, which is rare.
Valvular heart disease (VHD) refers to the disorder of cardiac valves leading to valvular regurgitation
By this case, we want to highlight the importance of considering hyperthyroidism early on in the differential for unexplained valvular regurgitation
and heart failure and also considering cardiac cause as a differential for liver cirrhosis.
was more than valvular stenosis.
Mitral and tricuspid valvular regurgitation
graded by Doppler color flow with two dimensional echocardiography is shown in Table-I.
Some studies evaluate the pumping efficacy of a left ventricular assist device according to cannulation site in heart failure with valvular regurgitation
. They aimed to analyze the contribution of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to mitral and aortic valve regurgitation for the following cannulation sites: from the LA to the aorta (LAAO) and from the LV to the aorta (LVAO) under different conditions.
Evidence of endocardial involvement with a positive echocardiogram for infective endocarditis (i.e., an intracardiac mass, abscess, or new dehiscence of prosthetic valve), or new/worsening valvular regurgitation
are additional major criteria.
