  1. 1. Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy Is it right?

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Meriam Åström Aneq; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2011]

    Abstract : Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is an inherited heart disease, where sudden cardiac death in young seemingly healthy persons may be the first symptom. There is a need for more sensitive and accurate diagnostic methods to detect signs of disease, at an early stage and in relatives of affected individuals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Echocardiographic measurements of the heart with focus on the right ventricle

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro university

    Author : Karin Loiske; Örebro universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; heart; right ventricle; right ventricular outflow tract 1; isovolumetric relaxation time; maximal early diastolic relaxation velocity; takotsubo cardiomyopathy; long-axis function; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Clinical physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Klinisk fysiologi; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Echocardiography is a well established technique when evaluating the size and function of the heart. One of the most common ways to measure the size of the right ventricle (RV) is to measure the RV outflow tract 1(RVOT1). Several ways to measure RVOT1 are described in the literature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Right heart function in health and disease a doppler echocardiography and doppler tissue imaging study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Author : Per Lindqvist; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Echocardiography; Doppler tissue imaging; right ventricle; cardiac catheterisation; isovolumic relaxation; isovolumic contraction; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: It is well known that performance of the right ventricle (RV) determines exercise capacity and may confer prognostic information in different cardiopulmonary diseases. To allow optimal patient management, ideal methods to assess right heart function are therefore important. READ MORE

  4. 4. New insights in the assessment of right ventricular function an echocardiographic study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå university

    Author : Avin Calcutteea; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; echocardiography; right ventricle; ischaemic heart disease; pulmonary hypertension; aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement; three dimensional echocardiography; speckle tracking echocardiography; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background:  The right ventricle (RV) is multi-compartmental in orientation with a complex structural geometry. However, assessment of this part of the heart has remained an elusive clinical challenge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Strain echocardiography in the critically ill patient Studies in patients with septic shock and subarachnoid haemorrhage

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Keti Dalla; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Strain echocardiography in ICU patients; Left ventricle; Right ventricle; Septic shock; Subarachnoid haemorrhage; Norepinephrine;

    Abstract : In this thesis, strain echocardiography by two-dimensional speckle tracking imaging (2D-STI), was used for the evaluation of left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) function in critically ill patients with septic shock and subarachnoid haemorrhage. The aims were to: 1) investigate the value of strain echocardiography for the early detection of LV and RV dysfunction not diagnosed with conventional echocardiography in severe sepsis and septic shock, 2) to study the effects of norepinephrine on RV systolic function and pulmonary haemodynamics in patients with norepinephrine-dependent septic shock 3) evaluate the use of strain echocardiography for detection of myocardial injury in patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and 4) study the impact of general anaesthesia and positive pressure ventilation (PPV) on RV and LV myocardial longitudinal strain.
