Edyta Płońska-Gościniak, Tomasz Kukulski, Tomasz Hryniewiecki, Jarosław D Kasprzak, Wojciech Kosmala, Maria Olszowska, Katarzyna Mizia-Stec, Piotr Pysz, Beata Zaborska, Patrycjusz Stokłosa, Zbigniew Gąsior,

Valvular heart diseases (VHDs) constitute an increasing problem both as a consequence of population aging and as the sequelae of other heart diseases. Accurate diagnosis is essential for correct clinical decision‑making; however, in many patients, transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography is insufficient. Stress echocardiography (SE) proved to be a useful tool ... Read more >>
