Abstract

Recent clinical studies have indicated echocardiographic observations of gaseous emboli in the left ventricle (LV) and atrium (LA) during studies in patients with mechanical heart valves (MHV) in the mitral position. These reports have shown that the intensities of these gas bubbles in elderly patients are less than those in younger patients. These facts may indicate a correlation between formation of the gas bubbles and the LV functions. The goal was to utilize our pulse duplication system to create the corresponding physiologic conditions and to understand the impact of these parameters on SpE formation.
