Abstract

We assessed right ventricular (RV) geometric remodeling quantitatively in patients with chronic pulmonary hypertension (PH) secondary to left-sided heart disease using real-time 3-dimensional echocardiography by comparing segmental and total volumes to that in normal subjects. The comparison result revealed that RV geometric remodeling in the PH group mainly occurred at the basal, mid-basal, and mid-segments. Total RV end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes in the PH group were significantly larger than that in normal subjects.
