1. Pulmonary hypertension associated with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (PH-HFpEF) is common in patients undergoing a right heart catheterization. 2. Transpulmonary gradient (TPG), pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), and diastolic pulmonary gradient (DPG) are predictors of mortality and cardiac hospitalizations in PH-HFpEF. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Pulmonary hypertension...
1. Discharges, length of stay, and average total charges per hospitalization, of children with pulmonary hypertension have seen a statistically significant increase from 1997 to 2012. 2. The inflation adjusted hospital charges for national hospitalizations related to pulmonary hypertension increased from over $900 million in 1997 to $3.12 billion in 2012. Evidence...
1. Among patients with suspected pulmonary artery hypertension, vortical blood flow measurement by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging agreed closely with direct pressure measurement by during right heart catheterization. 2. The duration of vortical blood flow corresponded linearly with the degree of pulmonary artery hypertension and served as a specific and...
Image: PD  1. In the Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension Soluble Guanylate Cyclase–Stimulator Trial 1 (CHEST-1), oral riociguat significantly improved exercise capacity as measured by 6-minute walk distance in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. 2. In the Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Soluble Guanylate Cyclase–Stimulator Trial 1 (PATENT-1), oral riociguat significantly improved exercise capacity...
