inkás A, Varga A Abstract Stress echocardiography is a safe, low-cost, widely available, radiation-free versatile imaging modality that is becoming increasingly recognized as a valuable tool in the assessment of coronary heart disease. In recent years, there has also been an increasing use of stress echocardiography in the assessment of non-ischaemic cardiac disease given its unique ability for simultaneous assessment of both functional performance and exercise-related noninvasive hemodynamic changes which can help guide treatment and inform about the prognosis of the patients. Today in the echocardiography...

It is needless to say that heart disease in pregnancy is a challenge for the obstetrician and the cardiologist. Hemodynamic changes in pregnancy and labour can adversely affect many of the significant cardiac lesions. Increase in blood volume and heart rate are the important factors during pregnancy. In general stenotic lesions and pulmonary hypertension are poorly tolerated, while regurgitant lesions are better tolerated. Specific risks like aortic dissection and rupture are there for coarctation of aorta. Several risk stratification schemes have been developed for assessing the risk of pregnancy with heart disease over ...

Fragmented QRS (fQRS) results from localised disruption of conduction due to myocardial fibrosis and scar and is evident on 12-lead ECG. Inhomogeneous myocardial electrical activation consequently manifests as spikes within the QRS complex. fQRS has been shown to be associated with increased mortality, ventricular arrhythmias and major adverse coronary events across a spectrum of pathologies ranging from coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathies (dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and left ventricular non-compaction) to acute pulmonary embolism.1 fQRS has also been defined as a marker of arrhythmogenic rig...

Background The epidemiology of heart disease is changing, with rheumatic heart disease becoming less common but degenerative valve disorders, heart failure and atrial fibrillation (AF) increasing. Objective We sought to determine the prevalence of structural cardiac abnormalities in the apparently symptom-free adult population within our prospective echocardiography (echo) registry. Methods Our echo registry comprised echo studies and associated demographic and clinical data obtained prospectively from 362 consecutive asymptomatic subjects aged 50–74 years and without known heart disease referred between 2011 ...

Background: Patients (pts) with severe aortic regurgitation (AI) often present with symptoms of shortness of breath (SOB) or heart failure (HF); however, the effect of these symptoms and severity of aortic regurgitation on patient-perceived health status is unknown.Methods: Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ) data were collected using tablet computers from pts presenting for routine outpatient cardiovascular assessment between 6/1/2011 and 8/31/2012 who also underwent echocardiography within 90 days. Pts with other valvular lesions (including aortic stenosis) moderate or greater in severity, congenital heart di...
