Verworven hartaandoeningen bij de hond: mitraalklepdegeneratie versus dilatorische cardiomyopathie

In deze video komen de twee meest voorkomende verworven hartaandoeningen bij de hond aan bod: mitralisklependocardiose (ME) en dilatorische cardiomyopathie (DCM). We gaan dieper in op de huidige internationale classificatie van ME, gezien de diagnostische en therapeutische richtlijnen hierop gebaseerd zijn. Verder hebben we het over een praktijkgerichte diagnose en behandeling van DCM. Gelijkenissen en verschillen tussen beide ziekten wat pathofysiologie, diagnostische testen en behandeling betreft, worden met elkaar gecontrasteerd. Er wordt duidelijk aangegeven hoe u diagnostische tools zoals anamnese, lichamelijk onderzoek, ECG, thoraxradiografie, bloeddrukmeting, bloedonderzoek en cardiale biomerkers zelf kan inzetten bij de diagnose. Verder wordt ook besproken wanneer verdere diagnostiek zoals echocardiografie of 24u Holter ECG of het advies van een specialist cardiologie bij de behandeling nodig is.
