If stress images are taken >90 s after stress, some areas of stunning may have already recovered, missing ischemia (false-negative result). Therefore, it is important to rapidly return the patient from the treadmill to the echo bed. This limitation does not apply to bicycle testing. Subtle EKG changes under echo stress are not unusual; rarely, these may reach the criteria for a positive EKG stress test, even in face of a normal echo stress test. In this case, the echo result dictates the conclusion.
Wholegrain cereal, vegetables and fruit, as well as ³1 weekly serving of fish (especially the fatty varieties) should be encouraged. Lean meat and low-fat dairy products are also recommended. An egg daily is allowed, as eggs are an excellent source of nutrients and have a low absolute cholesterol content. Margarine does not contain cholesterol, but most of the abundant saturated fat it contains is turned into cholesterol in the patient’s body. Generally, the harder (less fluid) a margarine, the higher the amount of saturated fat (highest in baking margarine).
Valvular stenosis is assessed mainly based on nonimaging data; the tighter the stenosis, the higher the flow velocity, and the larger the pressure gradient between the proximal and the distal chamber. In case of multiple or superimposed stenoses, PWD allows to distinguish and individually assess each stenosis. Importantly, B-mode echo may also show telltale signs of severe VHD (calcification and restricted valve excursion in severe AS, flail MV in severe MR, etc). Valvular insufficiency is mainly assessed by color Doppler.
