Topic: Echocardiographic Evaluation of Left Ventricular Systolic and Diastolic Function in Nigerians with Sickle Cell Disease

Hadiza Saidu, Abdulwahab Kabir, Jamila A. Yau, Ahmad M. Yakasai, Umar Abdullahi, Aisha M. Nalado, Baba Maiyaki Musa
Introduction: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is chronic, inherited haemoglobin disorder, associated with chronic tissue ischemia which may adversely affect any organ system. Chronic anaemia in SCD results in cardiac chamber dilatation with compensatory increase in left ventricular mass and varying degree of diastolic dysfunction that has been a strong independent predictor of mortality in patients with SCD. There is pau

Prognostic Value of RV Tissue Annular Velocity in Chronic Pulmonary Artery Hypertension

Prabin Shrivastava, Pravin Kumar Jha, Tony Ete, Swapan Saha, Rinchin Dorjee Megeji, Gaurav Kavi, Chandra Kumar Das, Shingamlung Kamei, Dhanjit Nath, Synrang Batngen Warjri, Rondeep Kumar Sivam, Manish Kapoor, Amit Malviya, Animesh Mishra
Background: Elevated afterload in chronic pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) leads to sequence of events resulting in right ventricular (RV) hypertrophy, dilatation and eventual RV dysfunction. In last two decades, great emphasis has been laid on the right ventricular function for the prognosis of PAH. Hence, RV functional assessment is essential for assessing prognosis and monitoring therapeutic interventions in PAH patient. The
