Se revisan los factores involucrados en la patogenesis de la disfuncion ventricular derecha (DVD) en el contexto de la sobrecarga cronica de presion del ventriculo derecho en las dos entidades representativas del Cor Pulmonale (CP) cronico: la enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva cronica (EPOC) como ejemplo de las enfermedades que producen hipertension arterial pulmonar (HAP) a traves de hipoxemia y/o hipercapnia, y la HAP Primaria representativa de las enfermedades que condicionan HAP a traves de…

Insuficiencia cardíaca: Aspectos básicos de una epidemia en aumento
Heart Failure is a complex problem resulting from a structural or functional disorder that impairs the ventricular filling and ejection of blood ability that is also characterized by the presence of cardinal symptoms such as dyspnea, fatigue and fluid retention.
Heart Failure: Basic issues of a growing epidemic
In the initial stages, cardiac function at rest may be regular but it does not properly increase with exercise; in advanced stages it becomes abnormal even at rest.


Right ventricular ischemia in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension.
Survival in primary pulmonary hypertension. Validation of a prognostic equation.
The proposed prognostic equation had a high sensitivity and a relatively low specificity to predict survival in the PPH population, but was relatively unable to predict deaths in this population, in part because of the strict limits of poor prognosis.

The Pathophysiology of Failure in Acute Right Ventricular Hypertension: Hemodynamic and Biochemical Correlations
It is demonstrated that ischemia is the cause of failure in acute RV hypertension, as evidenced by decreased aortic pressure and cardiac output and increased RV end-diastolic pressure and RV systolic pressure.
