The echocardiography in the cardiovascular laboratory: a guide to research with animals.

Abduch MC, Assad RS, Mathias W, Aiello VD - Arq. Bras. Cardiol. (2013)

Bottom Line: The feasibility and potential for the morphological and hemodynamic investigation of the heart has been increasing the use of the echocardiography in the research setting.Additionally, the development of new technologies, like the real time 3D echocardiography and speckle tracking, demands validation throughout experimental studies before being instituted in the clinical setting.This paper aims to provide information concerning the particularities of the echocardiographic examination in quadruped mammals, targeting the experimental research.

ABSTRACT
The feasibility and potential for the morphological and hemodynamic investigation of the heart has been increasing the use of the echocardiography in the research setting. Additionally, the development of new technologies, like the real time 3D echocardiography and speckle tracking, demands validation throughout experimental studies before being instituted in the clinical setting. This paper aims to provide information concerning the particularities of the echocardiographic examination in quadruped mammals, targeting the experimental research.

Echocardiographic views from the right parasternal approach in a dog (A and C)and a goat (C and D). Parasternal long-axis view (A). Left and rightventricular inflow tract long-axis view (B). Parasternal short-axis view at thebaseline (C) and at the papillary muscles level (D).MV: mitral valve; RV: rightventricle; LV: left ventricle; Ao: aorta; LA: left atrium; RA: rightatrium.

Parasternal short-axis view at thebaseline (C) and at the papillary muscles level (D).MV: mitral valve; RV: rightventricle; LV: left ventricle; Ao: aorta; LA: left atrium; RA: rightatrium.

Mentions: Parasternal longitudinal view (Figure 4A). Inthis view it is possible to visualize the same structures assessed through the leftparasternal longitudinal approach (Ao, LA, LV and RV), besides the RA.
