Streamline-based three-dimensional peak-velocity tracing of transvalvular flow using four-dimensional flow cardiac magnetic resonance imaging for left ventricular diastolic assessment in aortic regurgitation: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2022 May 16;16(1):205. Epub 2022 May 16.

Cardiology, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust, Norwich, UK.

Background: Doppler transthoracic echocardiography is routinely performed to measure peak mitral inflow velocities in the assessment of left ventricular diastolic function. The limitations of echocardiography are well documented, but its accuracy in the measurement of transmitral peak velocity in the presence of aortic valve regurgitation has not yet been compared with four-dimensional flow cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Four-dimensional flow cardiac magnetic resonance imaging offers time-resolved cross-sectional velocity information that can be used to investigate mitral inflow peak velocity. Read More

Correlation of Intraprocedural and Follow Up Parameters for Mitral Regurgitation Grading after Percutaneous Edge-to-Edge Repair.

J Clin Med 2022 Apr 19;11(9). Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Cardiology Department, Instituto Cardiovascular, Hospital Clínico San Carlos, 28040 Madrid, Spain.
