AO, aorta; LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle. Confusion between the flow in aortic stenosis and the flow in mitral regurgitation when using the Pedoff probe (Fig. 22) Successive recording of one flow after another makes it possible to differentiate easily between the AS and MR flows. Other elements may help to identify the aortic ejection flow, which: • • • • begins after the QRS complex, observing the isovolumetric contraction time (the flow due to MR appears from the beginning of the isovolumic contraction phase, coinciding with the mitral closing click, and continues until the mitral opening click) is framed by the opening and closing clicks of the aortic valve is of shorter duration than MR is in continuity with a possible flow due to AR that has the characteristic appearance.
Aortic valve viewed in (b) TTE (two-dimensional (2D)/M-mode) and (d) in the transverse TEE view showing the three open scallops and the commissures. AO, aorta; LA, left atrium; LV, left ventricle; RV, right ventricle. 2 Segmentation of the mitral valve (MV) explored in multiplanar TEE: three segments of the large mitral valve (A1, A2, A3) and three segments of the small mitral valve (P1, P2, P3). The two mitral valve leaflets are separated by two commissures: the anterior commissure (AC) between A1 and P1, and the posterior commissure (PC) between A3 and P3.
The choice of palette is also subjective, according to what an operator is accustomed to, and to his or her visual perception of colours on the screen. The visualization of turbulence (coded green) is optional and depends on the diagnostic question at hand. 5 Other technical pitfalls Other technical pitfalls (Fig. e. a zone of exploration of the heart where the penetration of the ultrasonic waves is optimal) with the probe. g. g. an elderly patient, an incapacitating neurological or rheumatological condition, lack of cooperation from a child, intubated and ventilated patients).
