BACKGROUND Right heart failure can occur after orthotopic heart transplantation and can complicate implantation of left ventricular assist devices. The functional codeterminants of right ventricular function are not fully understood. We investigated the effects of left ventricular preload and afterload, systemic pressure, and the contribution of the interventricular septum to right ventricular function. METHODS AND RESULTS In vivo studies were conducted in 12 dogs by using a highly defined… CONTINUE READING
