Many of our staff have published extensively in peer reviewed medical journals. Dr. Gerard King, in particular, is a renowned specialist in cardiac echocardiography. He is regarded as a leader in the field internationally. As follows are some articles he has written on the subject over the years.
- The heart of the endurance athlete assessed by echocardiography and its modalities: “embracing the delicate balance”.
- Reduced right ventricular myocardial strain in the elite athlete may not be a consequence of myocardial damage. “Cream masquerades as skimmed milk”.
- The right ventricle of the elite high end endurance athlete cannot be underestimated.
- Subclinical anthracycline- and trastuzumab-induced cardiotoxicity in the long-term follow-up of asymptomatic breast cancer survivors: a speckle tracking echocardiographic study.
- Blood pressure control determines improvement in diastolic dysfunction in early hypertension.
- Left ventricular structural and functional changes in the metabolic syndrome.
- Feasibility study of percutaneous transvalvular endomyocardial cryoablation for the treatment of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy.
- Myocardial stiffness and the timing difference between tissue Doppler imaging Ea and peak mitral valve opening can distinguish physiological hypertrophy in athletes from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
- Early diastolic filling dynamics in diastolic dysfunction.
