to TEE, the use of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) periprocedurally during TAVR is cumbersome for optimal decision making because of limited image quality due to supine positioning, suboptimal imaging of the aortic root and ascending aorta for

obstruction in symptomatic patients whose baseline transthoracic echocardiography – despite the previously described physiological manoeuvres – has not shown LVOT gradients ≥50 mmHg. Symptom-limited exercise is safe using an exercise bike or treadmill. There

sedation in an effort to reduce both patient morbidity and cost ( 6 ). TAVI guided by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) thus has become advantageous because it does not require intubation of the esophagus, eliminating associated morbidity and potential

measurement of the aortic annulus is unobtainable and the size of the prosthetic valve mounted on the delivery catheter must be chosen in advance. Aortic annulus dimensions must therefore be assessed by noninvasive means, for example transthoracic

with coronary artery disease, specific parts of native coronary artery branches can also be visualised directly by transthoracic echocardiography. Furthermore, specific vessel parts can be visualised by colour-coded flow signals using 2D and 3D colour

Introduction Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) remains the commonest cardiac imaging modality as it is safe, cost-effective and useful in the diagnosis, management and follow-up of most cardiac conditions ( 1 ). As with all investigations

. Transthoracic echocardiography With the sheep in a sternal recumbent position, transthoracic echocardiography was performed by a single operator (DGP) in all sheep, using a Siemens Sequoia C512 scanner and 4V1 transducer. TTE imaging was performed following 20

Introduction Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a useful non-invasive method for estimating left ventricular (LV) volumes and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). The recommended Simpson biplane method of disks has
