Right ventricular systolic dysfunction is prognostic in various cardiovascular diseases. Right ventricular systolic function is not commonly assessed in the catheterization laboratory. Therefore, we developed a novel, reproducible method to measure right ventricular systolic function during selective coronary angiography. We analyzed the angiographic systolic translational motion and maximum speed of the right coronary artery (RCA) in 97 consecutive patients and compared it to the tricuspid… CONTINUE READING
