28 Jul Right-Hearted Dysfunction Gets a Renewed Attention from AHA
The American Heart Association recently released a statement on right-hearted dysfunction and failure, providing a guideline where there had previously been a gap. Dr. Miriam Jacob, a Cleveland Clinic M.D. explained that the right ventricle had often been overlooked in favor of focusing on the left because, “There are so many nuances that make it hard to understand, and partly because the left ventricle gets center stage for being the primary pump.” She added that now there are new methods and technologies for treating pulmonary hypertension. Their scientific statement was published in Circulation.
