BACKGROUND Accurate quantitative evaluation of right ventricular (RV) function has been limited by its complex structural geometry. Although embryological and anatomic observations suggest that the RV is composed of 2 distinct components, the RV sinus and infundibulum, most studies on RV dimensions and function viewed it as a single chamber. This study was designed to determine the volumes, relative contribution to global systolic function, and temporal course of contraction and relaxation of… CONTINUE READING
