    00:00 So let's wrap up this video.

    00:02 Cor pulmonale is right-sided heart failure caused by elevated pulmonary pressures.

    00:09 So we're in right-sided failure and it's the lungs' fault - cor pulmonale.

    00:14 Now the right ventricle hypertrophy is it gets bigger in order to help it first but after that adaptation goes wrong, you end up with the right ventricle that cannot pump efficiently.

    00:25 So patients can also develop right-sided heart failure following left-sided heart failure.

    00:32 Now if we're talking about the specific right-failure, we're talking about cor-pulmonale.

    00:38 Thank you for watching our video today.
