Mitral and Tricuspid Annular Velocities Before and After Pericardiectomy in Patients With Constrictive Pericarditis
Circulation Cardiovascular Imaging
Background-Previous studies have demonstrated that mitral annulus early diastolic (eЈ) velocity is increased in constrictive pericarditis (CP) and reduced in restrictive cardiomyopathy. However, those studies did not comprehensively evaluate mitral and tricuspid annular velocities before and after pericardiectomy. Methods and Results-We performed comprehensive echocardiography before and after pericardiectomy in 99 patients with CP, 52 with primary (idiopathic or postpericarditis etiology) anddoi:10.1161/circimaging.110.959619 pmid:21543641 fatcat:zkfhnab7dzhubl2go4w4dwikxm
