Bloc atrio-ventriculaire chez un jeune dogue de Bordeaux


  • Le bloc atrio-ventriculaire (BAV) est un trouble de la conduction électrique localisé au nœud atrio-ventriculaire et/ou au système His-Purkinje. À partir du degré 2, il s’agit d’une indication à la pose d’un pacemaker.

Temporal changes in clinical and radiographic variables in dogs with preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease: The EPIC study

  • Background: The Evaluation of pimobendan in dogs with cardiomegaly caused by preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease (EPIC) study monitored dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) as they developed congestive heart failure (CHF).
  • Objectives: To describe the changes in clinical and radiographic variables occurring as dogs with MMVD and cardiomegaly develop CHF, compared to similar dogs that do not develop CHF.

Longitudinal analysis of quality of life in dogs with preclinical myxomatous mitral valve disease

  • The “Evaluation of Pimobendan In dogs with Cardiomegaly caused by preclinical mitral valve disease” (EPIC) study1 was a multicenter, blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating the effect of pimobendan in delaying the onset of clinical signs in dogs with cardiac enlargement secondary to myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD).

Effects of pimobendane

  • Myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) is the most common cardiovascular disease in the dog. Progressive degenerative lesions of the valve result in mitral regurgitation (MR) imposing a gradually increasing chronic volume load on the left side of the heart. In some dogs, the volume load will result in clinically detectable enlargement of the left side of the heart and might eventually result in the development of signs of congestive heart failure (CHF), that is, pulmonary venous congestion and edema.

Evaluation of benazepril in cats

  • Heart disease is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in cats, but there is limited evidence of the benefit of any medication.

Atrial cardiomyopathy in an adult Labrador retriever dog

  • A 7-year-old castrated male Labrador retriever was examined for a 10-day history of weakness and syncope. Physical examination revealed bradycardia and a grade III/VI left apical systolic heart murmur. Electrocardiography demonstrated bradycardia, absence of P waves and an atrio-ventricular nodal escape rhythm.
