HeartWorks pathology models for both TEE and TTE imaging have been created to facilitate the ultrasound evaluation of patients with structural and functional disturbances of the heart and lungs. Accompanying notes highlight the ultrasound features displayed.

This module includes:

  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Regional wall motion abnormality associated with right coronary artery disease

 

Accompanying notes on the pathology models highlight the echocardiographic features displayed. The superb interactive functionality of the HeartWorks software is retained, including measurement capability.
HeartWorks Pathology Models
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

This model illustrates many of the echocardiographic findings associated with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The model displays biventricular hypertrophy with characteristic changes to papillary muscle anatomy and systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral leaflet with eccentric mitral regurgitation.

TEE ME4C view illustrating LVOT obstruction and eccentric MR

Typical hemodynamic and Doppler ultrasound features have been incorporated, including representation of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, mitral and tricuspid regurgitation as well as biventricular diastolic dysfunction. The images here show a TEE ME4C view illustrating LVOT obstruction and eccentric MR and a TTE apical 3 chamber view illustrating systolic anterior motion of the anterior mitral leaflet.

Right coronary artery regional wall motion abnormality

This model illustrates changes to wall motion that are typically associated with right coronary artery disease, with inferoseptal left ventricular hypokinesia and right ventricular systolic dysfunction.

The model also depicts tricuspid regurgitation, Grade I LV distolic dysfunction and Grade II RV diastolic function. The images here show a TTE parasternal mid SAX view with end systolic and diastolic traces and a TEE RV inflow-outflow with PWD across the tricuspid valve.

Resuscitative TEE Project Workshop

 

HeartWorks powers first Resuscitative TEE Project workshop

MedaPhor’s HeartWorks simulators have powered the first Resuscitative TEE Project (#RESTEE) workshop at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. It is believed that this is the first practical course of its kind dedicated solely to the practice of resuscitative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the United States.

The Project was the brain-child of Dr. Felipe Teran-Merino MD, from the Division of Emergency Ultrasound & Center for Resuscitation Science at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania who, together with a multidisciplinary group, wanted to create a focused education outlet for doctors…
