Sixty clinically normal German shepherd dogs, 31 males and 29 females, ranging in age from 1 and 5 years and with a body weight ranging from 22 to 37.2 kg, were examined by the two-dimensional mode, M-mode, and Doppler echocardiography. In Doppler mode, the mitral valve flows were obtained, where the aim was to determine the velocity peaks and ratios of the(More)
Two dimensional speckle tracking (2D-ST) is a relatively new tool that has been used in veterinary medicine to quantify myocardial function. However, there is little information about the use of this tool in healthy cats. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate left ventricular longitudinal strain and strain rate in non-sedated healthy cats, as well as(More)
Time-domain heart rate variability (HRV) parameters and the correlation between echocardiography and Holter examinations in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) were determined. Holter examination was also performed at different time frames: an entire 24-hour period, a four-hour period during sleep, and a four-hour period while awake. Ten(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate endomyocardial and epimyocardial left ventricular circumferential and longitudinal peak systolic strain and strain rate in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease using two-dimensional feature tracking imaging echocardiography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Epimyocardial and endomyocardial global and regional myocardial peak systolic(More)
