Anaesthesia 2019 & Surgery and Transplantation 2019: Right heart dysfunction in cardiac surgery - prevention and management

Background: Left ventricular failure (LVF) has been established as the cause for circulatory shock for the long period of time. On the other side, the role of right ventricular failure (RVF) as the cause of circulatory shock is still insufficiently recognized in perioperative settings. Most of cases were investigated in cardiac surgery, but in non-cardiac surgery, this entity type is neglected, although, the reasons for RVF could be result from the same pathophysiology reasons. According to the newest investigations and Evaluation and Management of Right-Sided Heart Failure published in last Scientific Statement from the American Heart Association (1), this review would like to show potential causes, diagnoses and treatment for RVF.
