Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is defined by a sustained increase in mean pulmonary arterial pressure > 25 mmHg. Due to its widespread availability, echocardiography (ECHO) is used as the first-line imaging modality to detect pulmonary PH and assess right ventricular (RV) function in daily routine. As such, ECHO is the key examination to detect the presence of PH, to provide valuable prognostic information and to give an orientation to therapeutic strategies. In addition to detection and screening, ECHO also provides clues for the differential diagnosis of PH. The present document, based on a consensus of experts, provides practical recommendations for the use of ECHO in the evaluation of PH and of its consequences on the right ventricle. [less ▲]

Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) is a standard and indispensable technique in clinical practice. The present recommendations represent an update and extension of the recommendations published in 2001 by the Working Group on Echocardiography of the European Society of Cardiology. New developments covered include technical advances such as 3D transoesophageal echo as well as developing applications such as transoesophageal echo in aortic valve repair and in valvular interventions, as well as a full section on perioperative TOE.

We aimed to prospectively and quantitatively assess the effects of aortic valve replacement (AVR) for aortic stenosis (AS) on mitral regurgitation (MR) and to examine the determinants of the changes in MR. Fifty-two patients with AS scheduled for AVR were included if holosystolic MR not being considered for replacement or repair was detected. MR was quantified using the proximal isovelocity surface area method before and 8 +/- 4 days after surgery. Mitral valvular deformation parameters did not change significantly, but the mitral effective regurgitant orifice (ERO) and regurgitant volume decreased from 11 +/- 6 mm(2) to 8 +/- 6 mm(2) and from 20 +/- 10 ml to 11 +/- 9 ml, respectively (both p <0.0001). Using multiple linear regression analysis, preoperative severity of MR, mitral leaflet coaptation height, and end-diastolic volume decrease were independently associated with postoperative reduction in MR, whereas changes in mitral valve morphology after surgery were not. MR etiology did not predict the reduction in MR. In conclusion, the decrease in MR observed in most patients after AVR is associated with the magnitude of acute left ventricular reverse remodeling. As the reduction in left ventricular systolic pressure contributes to the decrease in regurgitant volume, the preoperative quantitative assessment of MR should best be performed by measurement of the ERO.
