Right ventricular (RV) function may be impaired in pulmonary hypertension (PH), congenital heart disease (CHD), and coronary artery disease and in patients with left-sided heart failure (HF) or valvular heart disease. In recent years, many studies have demonstrated the prognostic value of RV function in cardiovascular disease. In the past, however, the importance of RV function has been underestimated. This perception originated from studies on openpericardium dog models and from the… CONTINUE READING
