Evaluation of right ventricular (RV) structure and function by EchoCG parameters can be of clinical and predictive significance. However, there are areas of intermediate values between average normal values and pathological changes, which include the values of RV structure and function that could be assigned either to pathological ones in the presence of disease, or to age, gender, ethnic or regional features. Gender and ethnic features of RV, as distinct from age-related ones, have started to be studied recently, and it is yet unclear how to evaluate them in clinical practice. Effects of exercise on RV remain understudied. In presence of cardiovascular abnormalities, the importance of physical rehabilitation is above any doubt; at the same time, there are concerns about possible RV functional disorders and remodeling due to inappropriate exercise. This review focuses on evaluation of changes in RV structure and function related with gender, features of the region, ethnos, and effects of exercise and programs of physical rehabilitation on the condition of the right heart.
