Sex and race differences in right ventricular structure and function: the multi-ethnic study of atherosclerosis-right ventricle study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Right ventricular (RV) morphology is an important predictor of outcomes in heart and lung disease; however, determinants of RV anatomy have not been well studied.
