Assessment of Global and Regional Left Ventricular Volume and Shape by Real-Time 3-Dimensional Echocardiography in Dogs with Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease

Bersås Ljungvall, Ingrid; Höglund, Katja; Carnabuci, Cristina; Tidholm, A; Häggström, Jens


Conclusions and Clinical Importance: The most prominent LV volume expansion was found in dogs with severe MMVD. Increased EDV, primarily in the mid-segment, leads to rounding of LV apical and basal segments in response to increasing MMVD severity. Assessment of LV volume and shape potentially could allow early detection of dogs at risk for rapid progression into congestive heart failure.
