Date:6/8/2009

Breakthrough findings unveiled at the American Society of Echocardiography's Scientific Sessions

WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) welcomes the world's leading researchers in cardiovascular medicine to present their most-recent findings at its 20th Annual Scientific Sessions, June 6-10, at the Gaylord National Convention Center in Washington, DC. This year, NBA basketball player and former heart patient, Ronny Turiaf will be in attendance to talk about how echocardiography, otherwise known as heart ultrasound, saved his life.

Many of the studies revealed will have a significant impact on the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and the application of echocardiograms. Studies detail the following:

  • A nonsurgical option for common heart procedures
  • Lack of adherence to guidelines leave symptoms unidentified and patients untreated
  • Newer technology that can better predict survival chances for heart patients

NONSURGICAL OPTION FOR COMMON HEART PROCEDURE OFFERS EFFECTIVE RESULTS WITH LESS RECOVERY TIME FOR PATIENTS

Technique presents options to elderly patients who may not survive open-heart surgery

This study found that patients unable to undergo open-heart surgery may be candidates for a new nonsurgical aortic valve replacement procedure. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is a promising new treatment for patients with severe aortic stenosis who are considered high risk for conventional surgical aortic valve replacement.

With this approach, echocardiography, or heart ultrasound, is used to guide interventional cardiologists through the procedure and to assess the effects
