Mar 19th, 2021 - The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published a draft guideline on the management of heart valve disease in adults. Here is a summary of the key recommendations: Referral Consider echocardiogram for adults with murmur ...
Sep 11th, 2020 - Some patients with "valvular" atrial fibrillation (AF) and stroke-risk scores low enough for oral anticoagulation (OAC) not to be indicated may actually face enough thromboembolic risk to justify the lifelong therapy, a new report suggests. The co...
May 31st, 2019 - Explanation The correct answer is cyanosis. Reduced excursion of the mitral leaflets during diastole is shown in the apical four-chamber view (Figure 1). The color Doppler image (Figure 2) shows turbulent flow entering the left ventricle during di...
Feb 26th, 2019 - A focused update of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) Task Force on Clinical Practice Guidelines and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) 2014 guidelines for the management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) ...
