In the article echocardiographic studies of 12 dogs with myxomatous degeneration of the mitral valve were compared. Patients were divided into two groups according to the presence or absence of pulmonary edema. The echocardiographic measurements were indexed to Ao - size. We received significant difference (p = 0.0077) only for LA/Ao, but this ratio can not be a predicator for the development of heart failure.
