Résumé : Interventricular septal flattening, frequently present in pulmonary hypertension (PH) can be quantified by the left ventricular eccentricity index (EI) measured at end-diastole (EId), end-systole (EIs) and at maximal septal flattening (EIm). In humans, EI correlates with invasive pulmonary arterial pressure. The aim of this study was to evaluate if EI correlates with parameters of right heart remodeling (RHR) and if EI is a quantitative marker of PH in dogs.
