Figure 1: Two-dimensional echocardiogram in a patient with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. (a) The apical 4-chamber view shows large right heart chambers with hypertrophy of the right ventricle. (b) The short parasternal view with enlarged right ventricle leading to interventricular septal displacement into the left ventricle. The black arrow points toward a small pericardial effusion. LA = left atrium, LV = Left ventricle, RA = right atrium, RV = right ventricle
