2-D Echocardiography was performed which showed dilated LV anteroseptal hypokinesia with apical half of akinesia along with aneurysmal formation of LV apical area.
Since the inability to turn over in bed is the major manifestation of nocturnal hypokinesia and preliminary evidence suggests that patients with PD change their position in bed less frequently than do non-disabled elderly people [11,31], we sought to develop an inertial sensor that can provide quantitative monitoring of axial rotation of patients with PD and their spouses while in bed.
The echocardiographic examination identified a normally sized left ventricle, with concentric hypertrophy and a moderated hypokinesia of the anterior wall, ejection fraction=50%.
The TEE findings showed PFO in eight cases, PFO associated with ASA in two cases, and PFO associated with ventricular hypokinesia and pulmonary arterial hypertension in one case.
