Echocardiographic assessment of right heart size and function in dogs with pulmonary valve stenosis.

Summary of "Echocardiographic assessment of right heart size and function in dogs with pulmonary valve stenosis."

We sought to determine the prevalence and clinical significance of right heart remodeling and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction in dogs with pulmonary valve stenosis (PS). We also sought to evaluate repeatability of several measurements of severity of PS, right heart size, and RV function in dogs with PS.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pumping mechanism that duplicates the output, rate, and blood pressure of the natural heart. It may replace the function of the entire heart or a portion of it, and may be an intracorporeal, extracorporeal, or paracorporeal heart. (Dorland, 28th ed)

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

Methods used for the assessment of placental function.

Methods used for assessment of ovarian function.

G-protein coupled receptors for APELIN that function in a broad range of physiologic processes including blood pressure regulation and heart contractility. They also have an essential role in early embryo development for GASTRULATION and heart morphogenesis, and can also function as a CD4 co-receptor for HIV-1.
