Evaluation of cardiac morphology, function, and perfusion at low radiation dose before mitral valve surgery


Goetti, R; Alkadhi, H; Plass, A; Feuchtner, G (2011). Evaluation of cardiac morphology, function, and perfusion at low radiation dose before mitral valve surgery. Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, 5(4):271-272.

Abstract

A low-dose cardiac CT examination for preoperative assessment of coronary artery disease and mitral valve annulus dimensions in 79-year-old female with mitral valve regurgitation, consisting of a prospectively ECG-triggered high-pitch first-pass perfusion scan under adenosine stress and a sequential scan at rest enabled the diagnosis of occlusion of the right coronary artery and high-grade stenosis of the left circumflex artery, reversible perfusion defects of the inferoseptal and inferolateral walls and a persistent inferior wall perfusion defect associated with inferior wall thinning and akinesia. All findings were confirmed with catheter coronary angiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Because of the diagnosis of peri-infarct ischemia, the patient underwent aortocoronary bypass grafting in addition to mitral valve reconstruction. CT allowed for comprehensive preoperative assessment of cardiac morphology, function, and perfusion at a low cumulative radiation dose of 4.3 mSv.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
