It is also possible to estimate the diastolic pulmonary artery pressure by summing the right atrial pressure and the end diastolic pressure gradient between the pulmonary artery and the right ventricle.
Cor pulmonale is a condition that causes the right side of the heart to fail. Long-term high blood pressure in the arteries of the lung and right ventricle of the heart can lead to cor pulmonale. Causes High blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs is called pulmonary hypertension. It is the most common cause of cor pulmonale.
Cor pulmonale is right heart failure due to high pressure in the pulmonary arteries (arteries that lead from the heart to the lungs). As this condition develops, the right ventricle becomes dilated (widened) and thickened, and later the right atrium may be affected as well.
Cor pulmonale can be defined as an alteration in the structure (e.g., hypertrophy or dilatation) and function of the right ventricle (RV) of the heart caused by a primary disorder of the respiratory system resulting in pulmonary hypertension.
Cor pulmonale is a common type of heart disease, as a result of its close association with COPD which has emerged, in recent years, as a leading cause of disability and death. 4 But there are in fact very few data about the incidence and prevalence of cor pulmonale.
