General ItemThree-dimensional echocardiographic determinants of the age of onset of myxomatous mitral valve disease in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
Purpose: To map the hearts of the Cavaliers using specialized software and 3-D echocardiogram and predict future onset and severity of mitral valve disease.
General ItemThree-dimensional echocardiographic morphologic analysis of the mitral valve in Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies
Purpose: To monitor the mitral valve structure of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (CKCS) puppies and to compare the structure of CKCS puppies’ mitral valves to puppies of other breeds.
General ItemClinical and echocardiographic predictors of outcomes in dogs with degenerative mitral valve disease
Purpose: To evaluate the clinical utility of resting respiratory rate and four different echocardiographic measurements of left atrial dimensions in predicting the onset of congestive heart failure in dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease.
General ItemEffect of treatment with spironolactone in dogs with pulmonary hypertension and myxomatous mitral valve disease
Purpose: To test whether treatment with the diuretic drug spironolactone, in addition to conventional therapy for congestive heart failure (CHF), will improve pulmonary hypertension caused by mitral valve disease.
