On the other hand, some studies point to systolic function, represented mainly by ejection and shortening fraction, as important predictor of mortality MacMahon et al. Suggestions from an observational study.

So, group and time effect, as well as the interaction between group and time were evaluated. Does atrial fibrillation in elderly patiens with chronic heart failure limit the efficacy of carvedilol? Moreover, many dogs included in the study suffered from severe heart failure and there was not certainty about the safety of prescribing a higher dose in these patients. Data have shown the beneficial action of carvedilol on systolic Chizzola et al.

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: The studied TMF variables were: Age, blood pressure, and heart rate homogeneity between the groups at baseline were evaluated by t-student test.


Echocardiographic evaluation of systolic and diastolic parameters of dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy treated with carvedilol. The definitive diagnosis is based upon echocardiography which is characterized by dilation of cardiac chambers, mainly the left ones, and by reduced systolic function.

Heartworm and Flea Prevention February 23, Fleas, heartworms, and other parasites can cause serious illness in your beloved cats and dogs. Echocardiographic variables differences were studied considering groups and time. In conclusion, the stability of the LVESDi observed in the group treated with carvedilol cardioomiopatia represent the beneficial effect over the ventricular remodeling. Moreover, favorable effects on survival and symptoms were described by many authors Packer et al.

The study groups consisted of 60 dogs presented to the cardiology service at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital due to presence of clinical manifestations related to cardiac disorder or just for screening.

Carvedilol in dogs with dilated cardiomyopathy. Heartworm testing is performed to determine if a pet is infected with heartworms Dirofilaria immitis. Unipolar, bipolar, and chest leads were recorded, which provided information about carciomiopatia disturbances, screening for ventricular and supraventricular premature beats, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular or supraventricular tachycardia. The Log-Rank test was applied in order to compare both survival curves Armitage and Berry, Lateral and dorsoventral thoracic radiographs were performed in order to look for cardiomegaly, pulmonary edema, and pleural effusion.

Recently, Oyama et al. Many authors have reported that these drugs improve the left ventricle systolic and diastolic function, and so they increase the survival rate and reduce the symptoms progression. 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. Echocardiographic variables were measured before and after 3, 13, 26, and 52 weeks of treatment or until death.


Sixty dogs with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy were randomly treated with traditional therapy – digitalis, diuretics, angiotensin-converting inhibitors – group A or treated with these drugs plus carvedilol group B. Reproduction for commercial use is forbidden. Concerning the results of electrocardiograms performed before initiating the treatment T 0four cases in group A dogs had isolated ventricular premature complexes VPC and the same happened in eight dogs of group B.

When the interaction was considered statistically insignificant, group effect for every time points and time effect for both groups were tested. Manual of veterinary echocardiographs. The dogs were randomized to receive either protocol A or B, in alternating fashion.

The impact of baseline left ventricular size and mitral regusgitation on reverse left ventricular remodeling in response to carvedilol: Services on Demand Journal. But what about our pets? Moreover, the importance of a clinical research like this consists in the evaluation of the response to the drug in the natural disease. Data obtained from M-mode measurement and Doppler studies allowed calculation of the velocity of circumferencial shortening VCF as:
