Tricuspid and Pulmonary Valve Disease

This program reviews the etiology and echocardiographic assessment of tricuspid and pulmonary valve disease. Echocardiographic examples of the key features of both stenosis and regurgitation of these valves will be presented.

Right Ventricular Function and Pulmonary Hypertension

Echocardiography is one of the most important tests in the evaluation of known or suspected pulmonary hypertension. A well performed echocardiogram provides an accurate estimation of pulmonary pressures and a host of critical prognostic variables including integrative pulmonary arterial hemodynamics, right-sided structural and functional parameters.

How to Access the Right Heart

This tutorial will review right ventricular assessment by transthoracic echocardiography. The primary focus will include techniques for optimal imaging while performing 2D and Doppler measurements of right ventricular size and function.  Finally, common caveats of echocardiographic imaging, including innovative techniques will be reviewed.

Objectives

Tricuspid and Pulmonary Valve Disease

  • Recognize the Doppler characteristics of severe pulmonary valve regurgitation
  • Assess tricuspid valve regurgitation with quantitative and semi-quantitative measures
  • Describe the etiologies of right sided valvular heart disease

Right Ventricular Function and Pulmonary Hypertension

  • Identify the necessary components of a comprehensive transthoracic echocardiogram in patients with pulmonary hypertension
  • Calculate pulmonary artery pressures including mean pressure based on information obtained from an echocardiogram, understanding the potential pitfalls to accuracy.
  • Recognize the echocardiographic parameters that indicate severity of disease in patients with pulmonary hypertension
  • Describe the echocardiographic patterns in various groups of pulmonary hypertension

How to Access the Right Heart

  • Discuss practical tips for the assessment of right ventricular size and function with 2D echocardiography
  • Describe cardiac doppler evaluation of right-sided pressures and function
  • Recognize the benefits and challenges of right heart assessment by echocardiography
  • Demonstrate innovative  techniques for optimal right heart assessment
