Figure 5

(a) End-systolic transgastric midpapillary views obtained at baseline, (b) during the recruitment manoeuvre and (c) during open lung positive end-expiratory pressure. Note the massive dilation of the right ventricle (RV), causing acute leftward shift of the interventricular septum (IVC) and compression of the left ventricle (LV; d-shaped) during the recruitment manoeuvre.
