The study was approved by the Philipps-University Marburg. Fourty-four patients were excluded from the final analysis for the following reasons: no reliable visualization (n=2), pulmonary valvular disease or combined aortic valve disease (n=6), mitral valve disease (n=24), atrial septal defect (n=9), ventricular septal defect (n=3).Author: Paul Schoenhagen, Ludwig Drude, Hermann H Klein, Mario J Garcia.

Quantitative analysis is an important part of the morphological assessment of the diseased mitral valve. It can be used to describe valve anatomy, pathology, function and the mechanisms of disease.

Echocardiography is the main source of indirect quantitative data that is comparable with direct anatomic or surgical by: 7. Each observer measured the isovolumic aortic jet (before mitral valve opening) and the maximal aortic regurgitant jet (at any time during diastole) using computer-assisted A novel method used to calculate RVol and RF is to obtain 3D color Doppler acquisitions at the mitral and aortic valves and use both the color Doppler.

A quantitative study of the mitral valve and its tension apparatus was carried out in 54 cases of pure mitral stenosis, 13 cases of mitral stenosis with incompetence, both diseased groups due to rheumatism, and 25 by: 6. remains useful to quantify mitral valve area in patients with bivalvular rheumatic disease, but it has yet not been validated in degenerative calcified mitral valve disease.

The continuity equation remains accurate to assess both aortic and mitral valve area, but it cannot be used to assess the mitral valve area in the presence of concomi-File Size: KB. Although minimally invasive approaches for individual aortic and mitral valve surgery are commonplace, these techniques are also quite appropriate for those patients with bivalvular (aortic and mitral) disease.

Through a small anterior thoracotomy incision, the surgeon gains access to operate on both the aortic and mitral valves.

It is the most widely used method of calculating AV area in aortic stenosis, where calcium deposition makes planimetry by: 2.

For the diagnosis of aortic and mitral valvular disease, a variety of noninvasive techniques are available to assess cardiac valve morphologic features and function, with echocardiography currently being the most widely used modality for Quantative Methods Used to Determine Aortic And Mitral Valve Disease book purpose.

Three groups accounted for % of the patients: % had an aortic and mitral valve procedure, 29% had a mitral and tricuspid valve procedure and % had a triple-valve procedure. Quantitative grading of mitral regurgitation is a powerful predictor of the clinical outcome of asymptomatic mitral by:   Mitral valve disease is a frequent cause of heart failure and death.

This study validated the accuracy of a real-time 3-dimensional (3D) color flow Doppler method performed during transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) for quantifying volume flows through the mitral and aortic valves using a dedicated offline 3D flow computation program compared to LV sonomicrometry in an open-chest animal by:   The quantification of regurgitant volume is crucial to the management of mitral valve disease.

The most recent American College of Cardiology & American Heart Association guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease place significant emphasis on differentiating severe from non-severe mitral regurgitation (MR) when deciding which patients are appropriate candidates for mitral valve.

Gated blood pool cardiac scintigraphy was used to assess quantitatively the degree of aortic insufficiency in 25 patients. The difference between the number of counts, corrected by time and background, at end-diastole and end-systole (stroke counts) in the left ventricle and right ventricle were used as indices of total (forward plus regurgitant) stroke volume and forward stroke volume Cited by: Introduction.

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a common disorder with a variable clinical course that is determined by the presence and magnitude of mitral regurgitation (MR). 1 Given the prognostic implication of MR, identification of factors associated with progression is important for risk stratification and surgical decision making.

A ratio ≥ defines patients with severe MR with a sensitivity of 87%, and a specificity of 91%. Quantitative assessment.

These parameters carry more accuracy for the definition of severe MR. Accurate assessment of mitral regurgitation (MR) severity is important for clinical decision making, prognostication, and decisions regarding timing of surgical intervention.

The most common method for noninvasive assessment of MR has been with 2-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography, which is often used as a qualitative tool. Several newer noninvasive modalities including 3 Cited by: The clinical outcome of asymptomatic mitral regurgitation is poorly defined, and the the use of quantitative methods involving Doppler out aortic-valve disease) and pure (without steno.

- Valve doesn't open = concentric hypertrophy = sustained ejection period = sustained felt apex, may feel a thrill over aortic area or aortic shutter. - Patients may suffer syncope (from reflex abnormalities). When you walk, pressure goes up in ventricle = reflex bradycardia and vasodilation = pass out because heart can't fill all extra space from vasodilation because it's stenotic.

Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is used to confirm the diagnosis and classify severity in patients with suspected ECG and troponin in acute MR to rule out myocardial er additional diagnostics (e.g., coronary angiography, blood cultures) depending on patient stability and the suspected underlying condition.

Classification.Pulsed Doppler can be used to determine R Vol and regurgitant fraction (RF) by one of two methods. The first one is by determining stroke volume (SV) at both the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) and at the mitral valve level, and calculating R Vol as the difference between the two values.
