Jumpin’ for June JASE

The June issue of JASE includes, “Obstruction in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: Many Faces.” Author Jeffrey B. Geske, MD, FASE, remarks, “Echocardiographic assessment of obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can be challenging due to vast phenotypic heterogeneity, complex hemodynamics, and variable findings dependent on loading conditions. However, accurate diagnostic assessment is needed for guidance of medical management, determination of septal reduction therapy candidacy, and intraprocedural assessment. In this JASE article, we present a visual Doppler atlas with many high-quality examples to guide interpretation and understanding of the many ways that obstruction can present in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.”

In addition to the HCM report, readers can look forward to two other state-of-the-art reviews. Both center on the role of 3D echocardiography—in the perioperative assessment of the hemodynamic ventriculoarterial junction of the aortic root and in RV volume analysis in pediatric heart disease. This issue also hosts a variety of clinical investigations on topics ranging from left ventricular trabeculations in athletes to 3D echocardiography’s role in mitral regurgitation to congenital heart disease. Two editorial comments, five brief research communications, and two letters to the editor round out this issue.

In his final President’s Message, Dr. Eidem reflects on this past year as ASE President and the progress of his three key initiatives: ASE Matters, ASE Mentors, and ASE Educates. Be sure to check out June’s Author Spotlight to learn more from author Giuseppe Di Gioia, MD, on his recent paper, Left Ventricular Trabeculation: Arrhythmogenic and Clinical Significance in Elite Athletes.

Please see the June ASE Education Calendar for a listing of educational opportunities far and wide.
