retour Echocardiographic views - Film n° 4

TTE - parasternal short-axis view of the left ventricle

RV: right ventricle, LV: left ventricle, IVS: interventricular septum. Ideally this view should aim at the cords of the mitral valve, i.e. at the median portion of the left ventricle. Tilting the probe upwards unveils the basal regions up to the vessels at the base of the heart (film 5). Tilting downwards uncovers the more apical regions. In addition to the interventricular septum, this view visualizes the anterior, lateral, postero-lateral and inferior walls of the left ventricle. It also reveals the anterior wall of the right ventricle at its LV outflow tract. This is often the best view for detecting a paradoxical septal movement. By tracing the areas of the left ventricle, it also allows calculation of the LV fractional area contraction close to the ejection fraction.
