Mechanical Complications Of MI: Right Ventricular Infarction
Right ventricular infarction typically occurs in the setting of acute right coronary artery occlusion with ST-Elevation MI. In this lesson, we review the basic features of right ventricular infarction.
In this course, you will learn:
To define the hemodynamics and pathophysiology associated with right ventricular infarction
To describe the clinical findings in right ventricular infarction with respect to the ECG and clinical features
To associate the abnormalities measure by right heart catheterization with the patient’s clinical presentation
To describe the angiographic findings on left ventricullography that suggest a diagnosis of right ventricular infarction
