    corpulmonale its heart failure primarily due to chronic obstructive lung disease ,in which by time the right side of the heart will be dilated and features of fluid over load raised jvp ascites liver enlargement ..ACT…………. etc will apeare
    but right sided heart failure alone its arare condition usually the eitiologic facters may tricusped valve disease specialy in drug abusers or valve damage due to other cuases but features will be the as corpulmonale apert from those related to respiratory disease
