AB1280 Diurnal variation of power doppler signal in metacarpophalangeal joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis
Background In a preliminary study on 10 patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA) we could show for the first time that Power Doppler ultrasonography (PDUS) signal of metacarpophalangeal (MCP)Expand
SAT0296 European Society of Cardiology/European Respiratory Society Guidelines and Detect Algorithm Right Heart Catheterisation Recommendations: A Real-Life Comparison
Background Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is one of the most common Sistemic Sclerosis (SSc) related cause of death. Right heart catheterisation (RHC) is the gold standard to detect a PAH.Expand
