Right ventricle diastolic diameter as a predictor of adverse outcome of patients with chronic pulmonary obstructive disease: One-year follow-up

Published:October 20, 2022DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.amjms.2022.10.007
      Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a highly prevalent, complex and underdiagnosed disease. Progressive deterioration and unfavorable outcomes are expected if the disease is not adequately recognized and treated. It is believed that echocardiography could provide more information on the prognosis of the disease considering other morphological and biventricular function variables.
