Chronic pulmonary hypertension (cPH) is known to alter right ventricular (RV) deformation and cause mechanical dyssynchrony. Since not all echocardiographic laboratories are equipped with sophisticated imaging tools, we decided to determine if Doppler would be useful to detect temporal differences between the ejection of the right and left ventricle (LV) as… CONTINUE READING
