Suggestions from an observational study. Restrictive left ventricular filling pattern in dilated cardiomyopathy assessed by doppler echocardiography: On the other hand, a rise of the systolic and diastolic ventricular volume was related by Quaife et al. In the last decade, many studies have shown that the diastolic function, as well as systolic, has a very important role in the progression of the disease.

Recebido em 19 de novembro dilatads Aceito em 14 de junho de Dilated cardiomyopathy DCM is the second most common cause of cardiac morbidity and mortality in dogs, mainly among large and giant breeds. In conclusion, the stability of the LVESDi observed in the group treated with carvedilol may represent the beneficial effect over the ventricular remodeling.

Avaliação ecocardiográfica dos índices de função sistólica e diastólica de cães com

In spite of this, the study of these allowed to notice variations over time regardless the group. Heartworm testing is performed to determine if a pet is infected with heartworms Dirofilaria immitis. Reproduction for commercial use is forbidden. Nevertheless, the authors did not observe changes in ventricular diameter. Nevertheless, the statistical analysis failed to show favorable effects of carvedilol over survival, the careful observation of Kaplan-Meier curves allows to conclude that dogs not treated with carvedilol died earlier.


The stroke volume was indexed to the body surface area SVi and the left ventricular ejection time was corrected to the heart rate, resulting in the left ventricular ejection time index LVETi as follows: Significance levels related to the study of these variables – along the time and independently of group – are described in the Table 4. The distribution of Dobermans and Boxers in each group was compared by means of chi-square test.

Fortunately, there are ways to help prevent them from invading your pets and your home. All dogs had cardiomegaly.

The lack of statistical significant differences in the other echocardiographic variables between groups A and B can be explained by the small number of dogs, mainly at the last time point studied. The dogs were randomized to receive either protocol A or B, in alternating fashion. Many authors have described rilatada benefits of carvedilol on ventricular function and remodeling in human patients with ischemic and non-ischemic cardiomyopathy.

Echocardiographic evaluation of systolic and diastolic parameters of dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy treated with carvedilol. But what about our pets? Carvedilol in dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy.

So, regarding the variable LVEDDi, a statistically significant difference was not found between groups A and B at any one of the time points, but it increased along the time when both groups were considered together. Sixty dogs with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy were randomly treated with traditional therapy – digitalis, diuretics, angiotensin-converting inhibitors – group Cardiomiopwtia or treated with these drugs plus carvedilol group B.


Sick Sinus Syndrome – A Heart Condition in Dogs December 11, Sick sinus syndrome has nothing to do with the respiratory system, as one might think. Diuretics were used in cases of congestive heart failure documented by thoracic radiography.

Survival time was counted from the day of diagnosis of DCM to the day of death. So, it was decided to use an intermediate dose. So, the first dog enrolled received the protocol A, the second received the protocol B, and so on. The fact that the group of dogs not treated with carvedilol showed increase in the LVESDi over the time, while the same did not happen in the group treated with carvedilol can be interpreted as an attenuattion effect of this drug on ventricular remodeling.


Previous or current treatment with diuretics was allowed. After idiopathic DCM was diagnosed, each dog was randomly assigned to receive one of the two treatment protocols. An echocardiographic analysis of the long-term effects of carvedilol on left ventricular filling patterns in dilated cardiomyopathy. Fleas, heartworms, and other parasites can cause serious illness in your beloved cats and dogs.

The left ventricular end-systolic diameter indexed to body surface area LVESDi increased significantly in the group A dogs compared to the group B animals.

Data obtained from M-mode measurement and Doppler studies allowed calculation of the velocity of circumferencial shortening VCF as: The Log-Rank test was applied in order to compare both survival curves Armitage and Berry, Even though the systolic function is the most known determinant of DCM clinical outcome, many human patients with severe contractility impairment show only mild symptoms Werner et al.

Canine Heartworm Testing February 23, Heartworm testing is performed to determine if a pet is infected with heartworms Dirofilaria immitis. Every dog was submitted to physical examination, blood pressure measurement, complete blood count CBC and biochemical profile, ECG, thoracic radiographs, and echocardiography before T 0 and after three T 113 T 226 T 3 and 52 T 4 weeks of therapy or until death.

Some echocardiographic variables changed over the time, regardless of group.
