What is differences between right ventricular hypertrophy & right heart failure; cor pulmonale & pulmonary hypertension? Do they hv the same meaning?
Related: Pulmonary hypertension leads to right ventricular hypertophy. If the hypertension is severe and prolongued, the hypertrophied right ventricle begins to enlarge out of proportion to it's thickness. That is called cor pulmonale. Subsequently the right ventricle begins to fail, the right ventricular end diastolic pressures rise over 20mmhg, the rv cardiac output gets compromised, legs, liver, abdswell. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sort of: Cor pulmonale is the inability of the right side of the heart to pump blood through the lungs. One common cause is left-sided heart failure and this isn't cor pulmonale. A host of lung diseases cause cor pulmonale and some folks use the term to include heart failure due to pulmonary thromboembolization. ...Read more
Echo1.Old myocardial infraction (inferior+posterior+antero septal+apical)
2.Severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. What medicine you prefer?
A few: Assuming no medication side effects and normal vital signs in addition to no comorbidities that may play into this- daily aspirin, a beta blocker, statin and often an ace inhibitor. Each patient may need different things based on what else is going on. Have a conversation with your doc about it ...Read more

Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge.

Cor pulmonale: Cor pulmonale is right heart failure due to pulmonary(lung)disease. Generically we can say its right heart failure. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition of generalized heart dilation usually resulting in heart failure. Right heart failure often exists in dilated cardiomyopathy because of failure of the right ventricle. ...Read more
Does a right atrium dilated, RV pressure of 25-30 mHg, IVC dynamics 5-10 mmHg subjective possibly of pulmonary hypertension or heart failure?
If accurate, only: mildly ?ed. RA ~10 mmHg, RV systolic ~25 mmg Hg generally ~optimally healthy; similar to the values stated. Thus RA enlargement likely: mismeasurement (common, not rare; study image data yourself), marked tricuspid regurgitation, congenital variant, atrial muscle problem [eg advanced arterial disease in RA arteries; (lumens too small to see by angiography) producing RA ischemia/fibrosis], etc. ...Read more

Wow,: Do u want 2b an md? The pulmonary artery takes the blood (that gave up the oxygen to the tissues in the body) from your right heart to the lungs. Oxygenated blood returns to the left heart via the 4 pulmonary veins. This is called the pulmonary circulation ( see google) pulmonary (in the p.Artery) and the tricuspid (between the 2 chambers of the right heart control the flow in this system. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

PH and PAH: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is often first detected by echocardiogram and may be caused by a variety of conditions. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is caused narrowing of the small lung arteries and must be diagnosed by heart catheterization.

Yes: Cor pulmonale refers to failure of the right ventricle - the part of the heart that pumps blood to the lungs. COPD can result in cor pulmonale. This happens when COPD results in hypoxemia (low oxygen). When there is a low level of oxygen in the lungs, the blood vessels in the lungs contact more strongly. This high pressure applies stress to the right ventricle, causing it to fail. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal lung veins: The pulmonary veins are the vessels that normally bring blood with oxygen back to the heart from the lungs. Supracardiac tapvr is when these veins drain to the innominate vein which eventually brings that blood back to the right side of the heart rather than the left. This requires surgical repair. Babies born with this usually have much lower than normal oxygen levels and appear blue. ...Read more
