Examination of the left ventricular cavity in patients with chronic Chagas' disease using cineventriculography. I. Size, shape and general performance



Examination of the left ventricular cavity in patients with chronic Chagas' disease using cineventriculography. I. Size, shape and general performance



Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia 50(1): 33-42



The size, shape and general performance of the left ventricle in 17 patients with chronic Chagas' disease was assessed by ventriculography and was compared to 11 normal controls. Six parameters of heart function were examined, and the results are described in detail. In infected patients, the left ventricle tended to take on a globular shape with progressive dilatation.
