Dreidimensionale Echokardiographie zur Beurteilung der Mitralklappe

Abstract

Using two-dimensional echocardiography, the complex anatomy of the mitral valve needs mental reconstruction into its three-dimensional shape. The power of both transthoracic and transesophageal three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE) lies in its possibility of showing the complex mitral valve anatomy in one single image, as opposed to the mental reconstruction based on multiple two-dimensional images and schematic assumptions. Several 3DE modalities are used in daily life, including real time (“live”) modes as wells as postprocessed images. 3DE is of special interest in the evaluation of mitral stenosis, complex mitral valve prolapse and mitral valve prostheses. It has an established role in the perioperative mitral valve assessment during mitral valve surgery as well as during percutaneous mitral valve procedures. Limitations of 3DE are relatively low frame rates, an important learning curve as well as timeconsuming processing.

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.
