Three-dimensional changes in left and right ventricular geometry in chronic mitral regurgitation.


Regional three-dimensional (3-D) right (RV) and left ventricular (LV) geometry was studied in eight dogs before and 5-6 mo after induction of mitral regurgitation (MR). Ventricular shape changes were quantified with a 3-D finite-element model fitted to chamber contours traced on cardiac magnetic resonance images. MR increased LV end-diastolic volume (LVEDV… (More)
