Aortic prosthetic valve assessment is not like native aortic valve assessment. It has lots of cavities, its evaluation needs lots of consideration like DVI, AV acceleration time and EOAI.
Special algorithm was designed to reach to the proper diagnosis (normal, high flow, stenotic valve, patient prosthetic mismatch) and proper management
This lecture will guide you to assess AV prosthesis in well-organized steps, starting from peak velocity, DVI, AV acceleration time and EOAI. The lecture will be explained by clinical cases from our practice.
Online interactive lecture for Cardiologist, Fellow of cardiology, Cardiac surgeon, Echo technician, Cardiac surgeon: consultant, specialist, Internist, general practitioner and anyone interested in the science of echocardiography assessment of aortic prosthetic valve.
By the end of the lecture, learners should be able to:
1. Determine what the flow dependent parameter.
2. Learn what the less flow-dependent parameter is.
3. When you should start to evaluate AV prosthesis.
4. Realize how can you use the algorithm of the prosthetic aortic valve in your clinical practice routinely.
