Accompanying notes on the pathology models highlight the echocardiographic features displayed. The superb interactive functionality of the HeartWorks software is retained, including measurement capability.
Mechanical aortic valve
This model demonstrates a bileaflet mechanical aortic valve prosthesis. The Doppler profile permits detailed evaluation of prosthetic function while the characteristics of the left ventricle and aorta reflect the underlying native pathology ventricular hypertrophy and post-stenotic dilation of the ascending aorta.
Right ventricular dysfunction with tricuspid regurgitation
A dilated right ventricle with impaired systolic and diastolic function is associated with functional tricuspid regurgitation. The Doppler data accurately reproduces common findings in this clinical setting.
Aortic stenosis and mitral stenosis Doppler
Flow velocity has been added to the existing aortic stenosis and mitral stenosis models (Pathology Module 2). Spectral and colour flow Doppler displays demonstrate characteristic appearances with stenotic flow.
