Right ventricular enlargement in heartworm disease


Right ventricular enlargement in heartworm disease



American Journal of Veterinary Research 38(11): 1801-1805



ISSN/ISBN: 0002-9645

PMID: 145193

The size of the right ventricle of 15 dogs with natural Dirofilaria immitis infection was evaluated. Based on electrocardiography and right ventricular weights, none of the 15 dogs had evidence of right ventricular hypertrophy. Based on radiography, only 2 of the dogs had right ventricles of normal size. Right ventricular dilation in the absence of right ventricular hypertrophy was demonstrated.
