Resumen

CAVIEDES S, IVÁN; URIARTE G. DE C, POLENTZI  y  LOPEZ H, CRISTIÁN. Right ventricle: Relationship with pulmonary and left ventricular pathology. Rev. chil. enferm. respir. [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.2, pp.81-90. ISSN 0717-7348.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73482010000200003.

In a previous article, we reviewed path physiological concepts of right ventricle considering its importance in cardio respiratory diseases and its behavior was compared with left ventricle. Measurement of right ventricular function is complex due to its pre load dependence. Remarkable progress has been developed in methods to measure anatomy and function. Probably a functional definition might include diverse parameters as geometry, hypertrophy, dilatation, contraction, oxygen supply to muscular wall and ejected volume. In the present review, we describe the behavior of right ventricle in different pathologies. In first place, we analyze its behavior in respiratory diseases and afterwards in diseases, which involves pulmonary circulation and left ventricular failure. Our purpose is to stimulate pulmonary physicians and cardiologists in the study of this common entity. A complete description of the diseases, which causes right ventricular failure, goes beyond the limits of this article.

Palabras clave : Right ventricle; right ventricle failure; cor pulmonale.
