Right Ventricular Myocardial Performance Index Is Decreased With Severe Pressure-Overload Cardiac Hypertrophy in Young Rats

Abstract

Although the right ventricular (RV) myocardial performance index (MPI) usually is increased in the presence of RV dysfunction and pressure overload, debate continues over the correlation between the RV MPI and functional derangement in patients with RV pressure-overload congenital heart disease (CHD). To address this controversy, this study took serial… (More)
