Left ventricular endomyocardial fibrosis (LVEMF) with calcification

Left ventricular endomyocardial fibrosis (LVEMF) with calcification – echocardiograms

Left ventricular endomyocardial fibrosis with calcification

Echocardiogram in parasternal long axis view demonstrating a region of dense calcification (Calc) in the left ventricle, in a case of left ventricular endomyocardial fibrosis. LV: left ventricle; RV: right ventricle; Ao: aorta; LA: left atrium.

LVEMF with calcification seen in apical 4C view

Echocardiogram in apical four chamber (4C) view demonstrating a region of dense calcification (Calc) in the left ventricle, in a case of LVEMF. RA: right atrium

E/A reversal in LVEMF

E wave is taller than A wave in the mitral inflow tracing, suggesting left ventricular diastolic dysfunction.

MCQs in Medicine - Cardiovascular System is based on undergraduate medical curriculum. Though the questions are aimed at basic post graduate entrance examinations, candidates taking competitive exams at the post graduate exit level may also find them useful, especially the explanations for the answers. Undergraduate medical students will find them useful for answering MCQ tests in their regular exams.
