Can MRI Evaluate Beta-blocker Response in Portal Hypertension? (B-SMaRT)

pass a pressure sensor through a vein in the neck, down into the liver. This is called the hepatic venous pressure gradient (HVPG) measurement. The HVPG measurement is disliked by patients because it

Hemodynamic, Vascular and Muscular Parameters of Exercise Capacity in Single-Ventricle Patients With Fontan Procedure

After the Fontan procedure applied in patients with a functional or anatomical single ventricle, patients are faced with significant morbidity and mortality risk. Most of the common complications after Fontan such as arrhythmia, cyanosis, ventricular dysfunction, heart failure, atrioventricular valve insufficiency, protein-losing enteropathy, thrombosis, bleeding, venous insufficiency directly or indirectly …

EUS Elastography for Predicting Cirrhotic-related Complications

Evaluation of the tissue stiffness as a surrogate marker of degree of liver cirrhosis has gained popularity in recent decades. Current guidelines also advocate the use of Fibroscan® machine (EchoSens, Paris, France) to detect any advanced liver fibrosis as represented by high liver stiffness, for prediction of varices development. Apart …

Early Diastolic Dysfunction in Patients With Septic Shock and Its Association With the Presence of Cardiomyopathy Genetic Variants (SepticHeartG)

Sepsis is a life-threatening infection with increasing incidence, and its spectrum of disease can involve cardiac dysfunction, which further adds to mortality. Although cardiac involvement in sepsis has been classically attributed to systolic dysfunction, diastolic dysfunction is increasingly diagnosed due to new echocardiographic techniques and the conceptual evolution of diastolic …

Cerebral Monitoring and Post-operative Delirium and Outcomes (Techno-5)

Brain monitoring using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) started in 2002 in the operating room of the Montreal heart Institute (MHI). This was followed by the use of somatic NIRS in 2010, transcranial Doppler in 2015 and processed electroencephalogram (pEEG) using Sedline (Masimo, Irvine CA) in 2017. The introduction of those modalities …

Point-of-Care Ultrasound in Predicting Adverse Outcomes in Emergency Department Patients With Acute Pulmonary Embolism

This study is an observational, prospective study examining the role point-of-care echocardiography of predicting short term adverse outcomes in emergency department patients with acute pulmonary embolism. The primary objective is to assess the diagnostic performance of ultrasound-guided measures of right ventricular dilation (RVD) and strain in predicting clinical outcomes in …
