Idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is usually associated with a poor outcome but the prognosis with other forms of PAH is not well-described. Advances in therapy have furthered clouded the disease course. We sought to determine the baseline indicators of prognosis in patients with PAH. We reviewed the records of patients with PAH followed up at our institution to identify those who died within 2 years (reduced survival group; n = 21) and those who survived >5 years (long survival… CONTINUE READING
