Transthoracic echocardiographic predictors of the left atrial appendage contraction velocity in stroke patients with sinus rhythm

, : Transthoracic echocardiographic predictors of the left atrial appendage contraction velocity in stroke patients with sinus rhythm. Tohoku Journal of Experimental Medicine 208(4): 291-298

Systemic embolization is a potential complication in patients with thrombi situated in the left atrium and particularly, in the left atrial appendage (LAA). Reduced LAA contraction velocities, determined by the transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), are associated with increased risk of LAA spontaneous echocontrast and thrombus formation, and a history of systemic embolism. However, TEE remains a semi-invasive procedure, limiting its serial application as a screening tool.

Heating of caterpillars of the mulberry silkworm of the IV-Vth instar at 45[degree] for 15-60 minutes led to more frequent development in them of nuclear polyhedrosis. The frequency of polyhedral disease and the influence of heat varied for the di...
