Gordura epicárdica: Vamos medir?

Relationship between Epicardial Fat Measured by Echocardiography and Coronary Atherosclerosis: A Single-Blind Historical Cohort Study.Aqui..A historical cohort study was conducted on 143 patients, 40 to 87 years old, admitted for coronary angiography. The patients underwent transthoracic echocardiography and measurement of epicardial fat thickness in parasternal long-axis view at end-systole for 3 cardiac cycles. Both procedures were performed within a week before performing coronary a [...]

Estenose aórtica: Gradiente Máximo, Médio, área ou área indexada?

Background: Previous studies have reported inconsistencies between echocardiographic parameters of severity in aortic valve stenosis (AS). Peak aortic valve velocity (Vmax) strongly predicts outcome in AS patients. This study was therefore designed to identify the cutoff values of echocardiographic parameters of severity corresponding to a Vmax = 3 m/sec, =4 m/sec, 5 m/sec, or 5.50 m/sec in a large cohort of patients with normal flow (NF) AS. Methods and Results: We retrospectively rev [...]
