Abstract: A method for quantifying peak mitral and tricuspid regurgitant jet flow rate that utilizes a measure of jet orifice velocity (Uo, m s-1), a distal centerline velocity (Um, m s-1), and the intervening distance (X, cm) was recently developed. This method, however, modeled the regurgitant jet as a free jet, whereas many atrial jets are counterflowing jets because of jet opposing intra-atrial flow fields (counterflows). This study evaluated the feasibility of using the free jet quantification equation in the atriu…
