Focused Canine Cardiac Ultrasound

VETERINARY CLINICS OF NORTH AMERICA-SMALL ANIMAL PRACTICE, 51(6), 1203–1216.

By: T. DeFrancesco n & J. Ward*

author keywords: Echocardiography; Congestive heart failure; Dyspnea; Respiratory distress; Pulmonary edema; Ascites; Pleural effusion; Pericardial effusion
MeSH headings : Animals; Dog Diseases / diagnostic imaging; Dogs; Echocardiography / veterinary; Heart Defects, Congenital / veterinary; Heart Failure / veterinary; Pericardial Effusion / diagnostic imaging; Pericardial Effusion / veterinary
TL;DR: Focused cardiac ultrasound can be helpful in the diagnosis of left-sided and right-sided congestive heart failure, pericardial effusion and tamponade, and severe pulmonary hypertension, and can provide estimates of fluid responsiveness in hypotensive dogs. (via Semantic Scholar)

2017 journal article

Angiotensin-converting enzyme activity and inhibition in dogs with cardiac disease and an angiotensin-converting enzyme polymorphism

JOURNAL OF THE RENIN-ANGIOTENSIN-ALDOSTERONE SYSTEM, 18(4).

By: K. Meurs n, J. Stern n, C. Atkins n, D. Adin n, B. Aona n, J. Condit n, T. DeFrancesco n, Y. Reina-Doreste n ...

author keywords: Polymorphism; canine; angiotensin-converting enzyme; enalapril
MeSH headings : Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors / therapeutic use; Animals; Breeding; Dogs; Genotype; Heart Diseases / drug therapy; Heart Diseases / enzymology; Heart Diseases / genetics; Peptidyl-Dipeptidase A / genetics; Polymorphism, Genetic
TL;DR: It is possible that the genetic status and ACE activity of dogs may impact the response of dogs with this variant to an ACE inhibitor, and an ACE polymorphism is associated with lower levels of ACE activity. (via Semantic Scholar)

Outcome and survival in canine sick sinus syndrome and sinus node dysfunction: 93 cases (2002-2014)

JOURNAL OF VETERINARY CARDIOLOGY, 18(3), 199–212.

By: J. Ward n, T. DeFrancesco n, S. Tou n, C. Atkins n, E. Griffith n & B. Keene n

author keywords: Dog; Arrhythmia; Bradycardia; Sinus arrest; Pacemaker
MeSH headings : Animals; Dog Diseases / mortality; Dogs; Prognosis; Sick Sinus Syndrome / mortality; Sick Sinus Syndrome / veterinary; Sinoatrial Node / physiopathology; Survival Analysis; Treatment Outcome
TL;DR: Sinus node dysfunction and SSS represent a spectrum of sinoatrial node disease, which for some dogs may also involve a component of autonomic dysfunction, and medical management is often useful, particularly in atropine responsive dogs. (via Semantic Scholar)

Complication Rates Associated with Transvenous Pacemaker Implantation in Dogs with High-Grade Atrioventricular Block Performed During versus After Normal Business Hours

JOURNAL OF VETERINARY INTERNAL MEDICINE, 29(1), 157–163.

By: J. Ward n, T. DeFrancesco n, S. Tou n, C. Atkins n, E. Griffith n & B. Keene n

author keywords: Canine; Heart block; Transvenous
MeSH headings : Animals; Atrioventricular Block / therapy; Atrioventricular Block / veterinary; Cardiovascular Surgical Procedures / adverse effects; Cardiovascular Surgical Procedures / veterinary; Dog Diseases / therapy; Dogs; Pacemaker, Artificial / veterinary; Postoperative Complications / veterinary; Retrospective Studies; Treatment Outcome
TL;DR: AH transvenous pacemaker placement is associated with a higher rate of major complications (especially infections) compared to BH placement, and this difference may be because of a variety of human factor differences AH versus BH. (via Semantic Scholar)
