Introduction It has been shown that vascular function is impaired in patients with heart failure (HF). Arterial stiffness or reduced aortic distensibility plays an important role in exercise intolerance of this group of patients. Aortic distensibility can be reliably estimated by aortic pulse-wave velocity (PWV). PWV is the gold standard method for(More)
BACKGROUND Acute pulmonary vasoreactivity testing has been recommended in the diagnostic work-up of patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH). Pulmonary arteriolar capacitance (Cp) approximated by stroke volume divided by pulmonary pulse pressure (SV/PP) is considered as an independent predictor of mortality in patients with IPAH. (More)
