Patients with pulmonary arterial or distal chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension were able to increase 6-minute walk distance and improve physical status on domiciliary oxygen therapy.
Decreased pulmonary vascular distensibility was associated with right ventricular pulmonary arterial uncoupling in patients with unexplained exercise intolerance with normal resting echocardiography results.
The ratio of tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion to systolic pulmonary artery pressure is a simple echocardiographic parameter that can predict survival in pulmonary hypertension due to lung diseases.
Patients with either pulmonary arterial hypertension or chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension who underwent cardiac magnetic resonance imaging showed similar right ventricular and pulmonary artery features.
Older adults with emphysema had a greater risk for either subarachnoid hemorrhage or ruptured aortic aneurysm compared with those without emphysema.
The REVEAL 2.0 three category score was better at discriminating risks in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension than similar tools such as COMPERA and FPHR.
Elevated serum cardiac troponin was an independent predictor of increased mortality risk in patients with pulmonary hypertension.
Patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension had lower pulmonary gradient of methemoglobin compared with control patients.
Chronic hypoxia-exposed mice that were given fucoidans exhibited improved vascular remodeling and right ventricular function.
