Parameters of right ventricular filling depend on age, heart rate and respiration phase. The influence of age on right ventricular filling decreases in the presence of LV disease. AH exerts a great effect not only on the left but also on the right ventricle, which is evident as increased thickness of the free or anterior wall and disturbed diastolic function. The dynamics of right ventricular filling is closely related with the dynamics of left ventricular filling. The use of tissue Doppler-echoCG for detection of structural and functional alterations of the right ventricle provides additional possibilities in evaluation of CHF development.
