At 3-month followup, the patient remained in a stable sinus rhythm, without taking any medication. Box-plot graphs showing the difference between pulmonary vein cross-sectional areas before and after ablation. Aretz, J. Juang, et al. Pulmonary vein diameter, cross-sectional area, and shape: CT analysis. The greatest rate of stenosis was seen in the left inferior PV 24 of
Pulmonary vein diameters are typically measured at the junction between the left atrium and pulmonary veins, called the pulmonary vein ostia.
Pulmonary vein diameter, crosssectional area, and shape CT analysis.
PURPOSE: To retrospectively establish normal values for pulmonary vein veins (right inferior and superior, left inferior and superior) were measured at a. Several imaging modalities are used to assess the pulmonary veins, including chest radiography, echocardiography, magnetic resonance (MR).

Image the left pulmonary vein (or the right pulmonary vein); Align cursor with blood flow, use color flow Doppler for accuracy; Place sample.
The pulmonary veins drain oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium. A small amount of blood is also drained from the lungs by the bronchial veins.

They pass through the lung hilumantero-inferiorly to the pulmonary arteries, forming a short intrapericardial segment, to drain into the left atrium. Data are expressed as [interquartile range] range.
