Case Studies In Small Animal
This unusual view shows a right ventricle (RV) that is concentrically hypertrophied and an enlarged right atrium (RA). The tricuspid valve apparatus appears to be abnormal.
Right parasternal obliqued view
This also somewhat unusual view shows a large mass of tissue (myocardium?) with a small slit-like opening through it sitting in the region between the body of the right ventricle (RV) and the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). The right ventricular free wall appears markedly thickened. LV - left ventricle
Left cranial view
Another unusual view again shows the mass of tissue between the right ventricle (RV) and the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). The right ventricular free wall again looks thickened and the right atrium (RA) is enlarged.
