1 EVALUATION OF SYSTOLIC FUNCTION OF LEFT VENTRICLE BY ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY DR SANDEEP.R SR CARDIO

2 Basic Principle Systole The period of the cardiac cycle from the closure of the mitral valve to the closure of the aortic valve

3 EJECTION FRACTION Ejection fraction-percentage of LV diastolic volume that is ejected with systole EF=STROKE VOLUME/EDV=EDV-ESV/EDV NORMALMILD LV DYSFUNCTION MODERATE LV DYSFUNCTION SEVERE LV DYSFUNCTION EF >55%45 – 54%30 – 44 % <30%

4 IDEAL METHOD FOR EF CALCULATION Accurate Quick Reproducible Simple Relatively independent of LV geometry

5 M-Mode Quantification Use Parasternal Short-Axis or Long- Axis views to measure LVEDD and LVESD Measurement is taken perpendicular to the ventricle at the level of tip of mitral leaflet Assumes that no significant regional wall motion abnormalities are present Use Parasternal Short-Axis or Long- Axis views to measure LVEDD and LVESD Measurement is taken perpendicular to the ventricle at the level of tip of mitral leaflet Assumes that no significant regional wall motion abnormalities are present

13 EJECTION FRACTION

14 TEICHOLZ /CUBED FORMULA LV Volume calculation is based on assumption that the LV is a prolate ellipse Basic assumptions – LV dilates along the minor axis – LV internal diameter is equal to one of the minor axis of the ellipse D1 – Both minor axisof ellipse D1,D2 are equal This structure has two minor axis D1 & D2 and a major axis L V=4/3 Pi X D1/2 X D2/2 X L/2 LV VOLUME= 4/3 xPi x D1/2 x D1/2 x 2D1/2 = Pi/3 x D cube =1.047 x D cube = D cube

15 TEICHOLZ

16 MODIFIED TECHOLZ As LV becomes more spherical as it dilates the relation between major and minor axis changes. Therefore a regression formula was devised to correct for this change in shape LVV=( 7.0/2.4+D) x D cube

17 MODIFIED QUINONES METHOD Measure LVIDd &LVIDs Calculate radial EF If significant RWMA average EF measurement from basal & mid LV levels Add factor for longitudinal shortening

18 In the presence of RWMA all the above methods will be less accurate, since inclusion of RWMA- causes volume overestimation SIMPSON’S METHOD The apical biplane methods are more robust in this setting, using summation of a series of disks from apex to base (often called Simpson’s Rule). The ASE (American Society of Echocardiography) recommends use of biplane apical views with a modified Simpson’s rule approach

19 SIMPSON’S METHOD

20 BIPLANE SIMPSONS

21 Simpson’s method

22 Simpson’s Rule – the biplane method of disks Volume left ventricle - manual tracings in systole and diastole - area divided into series of disks - volume of each disc(πr 2x h ) summed = ventricular volume Preferred method of choice Volume left ventricle - manual tracings in systole and diastole - area divided into series of disks - volume of each disc(πr 2x h ) summed = ventricular volume Preferred method of choice LV-ED LV-ES A4C A2C LV-ED LV-ES

23 SIMPSONS RULE\ RULE OF DISC

24 AREA - LENGTH METHOD VOLUME=5 (Area )(length)/6 Hemi-cylindrical Hemi-ellipsoid Model Assumes: Base of ventricle = cylinder Apex of ventricle = ellipsoid Volume is calculated using a long axis length L and cross- sectional area Am of an orthogonal short-axis view at the mid- papillary muscle. V = (Am) L/2 + 2/3 (Am) L/2 V = 5/6 AL (Bullet Formula)

25 AREA LENGTH METHOD

26 VISUAL EF Echocardiographic assessment of global left ventricular systolic function is usually performed subjectively Experienced echocardiographers - estimate EF by looking at the overall size and contractility as well as the inward movement and thickening of the various segments of the LV walls without actually taking measurements Correlate fairly well with angiographic assessment of the EF Limitations: Irregular rhythm Very large or very small LV Extremes of heart rate

27 LV QUANTIFICATION METHODS

29 COMPARISION OF VARIOUS ECHO METHODS WITH CINE ANGIO & RADIONUCLIDE VENTRICULOGRAPHY Modified simpson’s rule showed maximum correlation with cine angio & RVG EF CORRELATION ESV & EDV CORRELATION

30 LV MASS ASSESMENT

31 This is done by tracing the epicardial to calculate the total ventricular volume and the endocardial border to calculate chamber volume. LV mass = 1.05 (total volume – chamber volume) Evaluation of LV Mass

32 LV Total AreaLV Cavitary Area Length

33 Evaluation of LV Mass Total volume= Total area x length Chamber volume = Chamber area x Length Myocardial volume = Total volume – Chamber volume LV mass = Myocardial volume x density LV mass = Myocardial volume x 1.05

34 Evaluation of LV Mass

35 LV MASS

36 LV Mass Quantification 2D M-Mode method using parasternal short axis view or parasternal long axis view Assumes that LV is ellipsoid (2:1 long/short axis ratio) Measurements made at end diastole ASE approved cube formula: LV mass (g) = 1.04 [(LVID + PWT + IVST)3 - (LVID)3] X LV mass index (g/m2) = LV mass / BSA Small errors in M-Mode cause large errors in mass values. Can have off axis/tangential cuts due to motion.

37 LV MASS ASSESMENT

38 LV MASS-TEE TEE evaluation of LV mass highly accurate,but has minor systematic differences in LV PWT LV mass derived from TEE wall-thickness measurements is higher by an average of6 g/m2.

39 LV MASS RELATIVE WALL thickness= 2XPW/LVIDd

42 B- notch Delayed closure of mitral leaflets between the A and C (leaflet coaptation) points, determining a "notch" known as B-bump (small arrows) Indicates increased left ventricular end-diastolic pressure ( > 20mmhg) LIMITATIONS 1) Low sensitivity 2)false positive with first degree AV block & LBBB-due to prolonged AC interval Ambrose J A et al Circulation60:

43 MITRAL ANNULAR PLANE EXCURSION M-mode tracings in systole The magnitude of systolic motion is proportional to the longitudinal shortening of the LV Normal mitral annular systolic motion is > 8mm (average 12 +/- 2 on apical4 or apical 2 views) If motion is < 8 mm, the EF is likely < 50% If <8mm -98% sensitive & 82% specific for EF <50%

44 GRADUAL CLOSURE OF AORTIC VALVE Decreased LV forward flow causes gradual reduction in forward flow in late systole This results in rounded appearance of aortic valve closure in late systole

45 DOPPLER EVALUVATION OF GLOBAL LVF

46 Doppler Stroke Volume Calculation CARDIAC OUTPUT= STROKE VOLUME X HEART RATE

47 Assumption used for measuring SV using Doppler are: 1. Accurate cross-sectional flow area measurement. 2. Laminar Flow. 3. Parallel intercept angle between Doppler beam and direction of blood flow. 4. Velocity and diameter measurements are made at the same anatomic site. Doppler Stroke Volume Calculation

49 DOPPLER EVALUATION OF LV FUNCTION

50 Problems in this technique 1. Apical 3-chamber view can be tried if Apical 5-c is difficult to obtain of velocities. 2. Underestimation of flow velocities- LVOT may not be aligned with the direction of the PWD an apical 3-chamber view may sometimes offer better alignment. 3.When the parasternal long axis view is not obtainable, a LVOT diameter of 2cms for males and 1.75cms for females can be assumed. 4.Variations in VTI with respiration Movement of entire cardia with respiration –difficult to obtain uniform velocities with PWD at LVOT

51 Accurate measurement of CSA – Weakest link in the calculation – VTI very good for assessing change in cardiac output with therapy, by following changes in VTI, since CSA is largely invariant in an individual Measures forward flow only – Regurgitant fraction not considered – May over-estimate systemic cardiac output Echocardiographic window in mechanically ventilated patients may be poor Accurate measurement of CSA – Weakest link in the calculation – VTI very good for assessing change in cardiac output with therapy, by following changes in VTI, since CSA is largely invariant in an individual Measures forward flow only – Regurgitant fraction not considered – May over-estimate systemic cardiac output Echocardiographic window in mechanically ventilated patients may be poor Pitfalls in Echo Calculation of CO

52 Myocardial Performance Index Applied to either the left or right ventricle. Ejection time (ET), isovolumic contraction time (IVCT) and the isovolumic relaxation time (IVRT). MPI = ( IVCT + IVRT ) / ET Systolic dysfunction is associated with a prolongation of IVCT and a shortening of the ET Normal range is 0.39 ± 0.05, and values > 0.50 are considered abnormal

53 RATE OF VENTRICULAR PRESSURE RISE (dp/dt) When Mitral regurgitation is present the CW Doppler velocity curve indicates the instantaneous pressure difference between the left ventricle and left atrium The slope of the MR jet velocity can be quantitated as the rate of change in pressure over time (dP/dt) by measuring the time interval between the MR jet velocity at 1 and 3 m/s

54 DP/DT-Lv function assesment 1 m/s, 4 mmHg 3 m/s, 36 mmHg dt dP

55 At each velocity, the corresponding pressure gradient is 4v squared per Bernoulli. dP/dt = [ 4 (3) (3) – 4 (1) (1)] = 32 mmHg Time interval Time interval Thus a longer time interval indicates a depressed dP/dt and thus a decreased LV systolic function. Evaluation of LV Systolic Function

56 CW doppler to measure rate of rise of MR jet may correlate to LVEF A slow rate of rise may indicate poor systolic function Must have MR present, and good doppler study present (more difficult with eccentric jets) CW doppler to measure rate of rise of MR jet may correlate to LVEF A slow rate of rise may indicate poor systolic function Must have MR present, and good doppler study present (more difficult with eccentric jets)

57 Limitations : This method is only useful in patients with enough MR to obtain a well-defined velocity curve. LA should be compliant. Click artifact (caused by valve closure) can obscure the descending limb of the CWD envelope, which makes measurements difficult. Eccentric MR jets may not reflect true velocity and will result in underestimation of dp/dt unless careful colour Doppler examination of the jet is made to minimize CWD error. A normal dp/dt maybe present in hypertension and aortic stenosis even with impaired LV function.

58 The other Doppler measurements that can be used to measure LV systole function are 1.Peak velocity 2.Mean acceleration 3.Acceleration Time 4.Deceleration Time 5.Ejection time 6.Mean deceleration Evaluation of LV Systolic Function
