Patients who are older and have systolic, diastolic, and renal dysfunction may benefit from peri-interventional preload reduction therapy before implantation of larger left atrial devices.
Exercise Doppler echocardiography may provide consistent assessment of right heart function and pulmonary circulation when conducted at expert centers.
In pulmonary arterial hypertension, high plasma levels of hepatic growth factor are associated with the right heart maladaptive phenotype and are incremental to the REVEAL score for the prediction of patient outcomes.
Exercise capacity improved, clinical worsening reduced for patients with pulmonary HTN due to interstitial lung disease.
Patients undergoing transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement using a Sapien valve had satisfactory short-term clinical outcomes.
Patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) who were treated with treprostinil using an implantable infusion pump experienced few serious complications.
Predicting bleeding during cardiopulmonary bypass is complex and not captured by tests, including measuring von Willebrand factor interaction.
A combinatorial model was devised to predict pulmonary hypertension using systolic pulmonary artery pressure and forced vital capacity in older adults.
Pulmonary artery denervation has been found to reduce the sympathetic activity of the pulmonary circulation.
