Example text

After admission, he developed severe chest pain and an ECG showed anterior ST elevation that was not present on an ECG taken on admission (a). His blood pressure as determined by sphygmomanometry was 90/30 mm Hg. Emergent cardiac catheterization showed no evidence of coronary artery disease, but severe AR with equalization of aortic and left ventricular diastolic pressures (b). 2 Left ventricular tracings alone (a), with femoral artery pressure (b), and with PCWP (c) in a patient with severe chronic AR (all tracings are on a 200 mm Hg scale).

Note the “dip and plateau” configuration and the near equalization during mid and late diastole. Operative findings in this patient included a dense, adherent pericardium. Central venous pressure dropped by approximately 15 mm Hg in the operating room with removal of the pericardium from the anterior RV and the RA. 2 Comparison of intracardiac pressures in the normal heart and in constrictive pericarditis. 3 RA tracings from two patients with constrictive pericarditis. Note the elevated RA pressure, prominent Y descent, and lack of respiratory variation (both patients were breathing normally during these recordings).

8 Peripheral amplification. Simultaneous aortic and right femoral artery pressures in a 49‐year‐old male with aortic insufficiency. Note that the systolic pressure is higher and the rapid increase phase narrower in the RFA. 1 Atrial pressure waveforms. Schematic (a) and actual tracing (b) of RA pressure showing A and V waves and X and Y descents. Panel (c) is a PCWP tracing showing V > A. 2 Examples of prominent A waves (a) and V waves (b). 3 Pressure tracing from a patient with severe tricuspid regurgitation.
