Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: To compare echocardiographic M-mode measurements of tricuspid annulus motion (TAM) with angiographic M-mode measurements of right coronary artery motion (RAM).

DESIGN: Twenty-four patients were included and examined by echocardiography before the angiographic examination. The amplitudes and the velocities of TAM and the atrial contribution to the total amplitude of TAM were measured. The obtained values were compared with angiographic M-mode measurements of RAM at a proximal and a distal site of the second segment of the right coronary artery.

RESULTS: There was no significant difference between several of the echocardiographic M-mode measurements of TAM and the angiographic M-mode measurements of RAM. However, the agreement was rather poor for some variables.

CONCLUSION: Different parameters obtained from echocardiographic TAM are not interchangeable with values from angiographic RAM. If measurements of RAM are to be used in the assessment of right ventricular (RV) function further studies are needed to examine the correlation and agreement between RAM and different methods of measuring RV function, i.e. radionuclide angiography or magnetic resonance imaging.
