As cor pulmonale advances toward right ventricular failure, patients exhibit pedal edema, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, ascites, distended neck veins, and hepatojugular reflex. These signs develop because the right ventricle is unable to deposit its normal stroke volume (70 cc to 90 cc) into the pulmonary artery.
