Mitral Regurgitation Case Study!

Last week we walked through a case study demonstration, using the ASE's chronic mitral regurgitation (MR) algorithm. This week, we have another case study to present-- let's see how you quantify the severity of MR! Chronic MR Algorithm Chart: Patient History: 60 year old female presented for...

3 Steps to Quantifying MR via Stroke Volume Method!

Last week we discussed 1 of the 3 ways to quantify the severity of mitral regurgitation (MR), using the PISA method (proximal isovelocity surface area). If you missed it, you can find it here! This week, we are going to explain the second method-- stroke volume method & provide a case example...
