To establish the correlation between echocardiographic parameters of the RV, measured with TEE and the right ventricular ejection fraction (thermodilution). To identify a time in the perioperative process when RV dysfunction occurs.


Measurements with echocardiography were done during cardiac surgery to observe the right ventricular dysfunction in the perioperative process

Should We Test for Diastolic Dysfunction? How and How Often?

Symptoms of heart failure (HF) are due in large part to elevation of left and/or right ventricular filling pressures. Although abnormal diastolic function is difficult to define, it contributes to the...

Assessment of right ventricular dysfunction in patients with mitral stenosis: A speckle tracking study.

Although it is affected at an early stage, there is a lack of studies investigating right ventricular (RV) function in patients with mitral stenosis (MS). We aimed to investigate the correlation betwe...

The role of echocardiography in acute viral myocarditis.

The diagnosis of acute viral myocarditis can be very challenging during the initial evaluation, warranting multiple diagnostic tests to be performed, including a full echocardiographic evaluation to e...

In ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, the echocardiographic parameters of microvascular obstruction are not associated with left ventricular remodeling at five years of follow-up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diabetes complications in which VENTRICULAR REMODELING in the absence of CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS and hypertension results in cardiac dysfunctions, typically LEFT VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION. The changes also result in myocardial hypertrophy, myocardial necrosis and fibrosis, and collagen deposition due to impaired glucose tolerance.

A condition in which the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the right ventricular wall.

A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease that is characterized by ventricular dilation, VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION, and HEART FAILURE. Risk factors include SMOKING; ALCOHOL DRINKING; HYPERTENSION; INFECTION; PREGNANCY; and mutations in the LMNA gene encoding LAMIN TYPE A, a NUCLEAR LAMINA protein.

A condition in which the LEFT VENTRICLE of the heart was functionally impaired. This condition usually leads to HEART FAILURE; MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; and other cardiovascular complications. Diagnosis is made by measuring the diminished ejection fraction and a depressed level of motility of the left ventricular wall.

A potentially lethal cardiac arrhythmia characterized by an extremely rapid, hemodynamically unstable ventricular tachycardia (150-300 beats/min) with a large oscillating sine-wave appearance. If untreated, ventricular flutter typically progresses to VENTRICULAR FIBRILLATION.
