Understanding the haemodynamical profile of the right ventricle and pulmonary circulation is critical to not only the initial evaluation of, but also the continued management of pulmonary hypertension. Despite advances in non-invasive imaging techniques, right heart catheterisation (RHC) remains the gold standard for diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension and its various causes. Even so, integration of invasive haemodynamical data with the echo-Doppler exam provides the most comprehensive… CONTINUE READING
