[Regression of pulmonary hypertension in mitral stenosis: an echo-hemodynamic study in patients who underwent mitral balloon valvuloplasty].


BACKGROUND Reversibility of pulmonary hypertension in patients affected by mitral stenosis is still under question. METHODS We selected 80 patients (mean age 48 +/- 14) who underwent successful percutaneous mitral valvuloplasty (PMV) for hemodynamic significant mitral stenosis (area < 1.5 cm2) with pulmonary hypertension (mean artery pulmonary pressure… (More)
