Topics in Cardiology

Presented by: Teresa DeFrancesco, DVM, DACVIM (cardiology), DACVECC


Mitral Valve Disease - How to Manage after the EPIC Study: This lecture will focus on the staging and treatment of dogs with preclinical mitral valve disease (MVD). We will discuss a landmark clinical study (EPIC study) of dogs with preclinical mitral valve disease and heart enlargement receiving either pimobendan or placebo. 

Update in the management of heart failure in dogs and cats: focus on treatment: The most important recent advancement in canine and feline heart failure management is the addition of an ino-dilator, pimobendan and a new loop diuretic, torsemide.  We will touch on other components of medical management such as diuretics, vasodilators and anti-thrombotics in cats.  

Approach to a new murmur in a cat: One’s approach to the diagnostic work up of an asymptomatic cat with a murmur is highly dependent on its age. We will review the etiologies and indications for proBNP, bloodwork, echocardiogram, chest radiographs and blood pressure. 

Sedating and anesthetizing the cardiac patient: Most sedatives and anesthetic drugs have some direct or indirect cardiac or respiratory effect. Patients with cardiac disease may not have the reserve to compensate for these effects. In a case based format, we will review the risk v. benefit ratio for various sedation and anesthesia protocols.
