BACKGROUND Acute right ventricular (RV) hypertension may result in hemodynamic collapse. The associated reduction in left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic volume is thought to result from reduced RV output (secondary to RV ischemia) and adverse direct ventricular interaction. Aortic constriction improves cardiac function in these circumstances; this has been attributed to a reversal of the RV ischemia caused by an increased coronary perfusion pressure. We hypothesized that altered ventricular… CONTINUE READING
